Reviews from Å sørge
«Sorg er så mangt, denne bokas beskrivelser er gode – anbefales!»Tove Gundersen, Psykisk Helse

Å sørge - nært, nøkternt og kjærlig om det såreste 09.03.2019

"Det er en vakker, men fullt realistisk bok.

Kristianes personlige erfaringer setter farge på det faglige språket og gjør at hun mestrer å skrive sant, nærgående og ektefølt om temaer mange synes det er vanskelig å snakke om.

Dette er en bok jeg tror kan hjelpe mange som står i sorgen, enten man har opplevd dødsfall eller hvit sorg. Boken trekker opp linjer mellom det friske og det syke og gir forståelse og kunnskap der man føler seg maktesløs. Jeg tror boka gjør meg til en bedre venn for mennesker i sorg."Helene Larsen,
