Tens of thousands of women are widowed each year. Combining compassion and encouragement with practical psychological and financial insights, On Your Own offers all women who have lost a spouse the guidance they need for a successful recovery from one of life's biggest traumas.

To support those facing such a major life transition, a certified financial planner and psychologist have teamed up to share their strategies. Both authors have lost loved ones, and are using their experiences to ease the journey for others.

On Your Own can help almost any widow heal her grief and carry on with life. The authors offer dramatic, true-to-life stories, attitudes and histories from four composite profiles of widows at different ages and stages of life. Sensitive yet practical advice is enhanced by checklists to help women move forward out of the grieving process. From mourning through recovery, the authors address how to:
-- make wise moves right from the beginning
-- incorporate online support and resources into both the financial and emotional recovery process
-- identify one's attitude toward finances
-- seek knowledgeable, trustworthy and supportive counselors, advisors, attorneys and other professionals
-- develop a budget and plan for addressing both immediate and future financial needs
