“I am writing this because I am a widow.
That means my husband died, but I did not die.”
Before Bonnie Shapbell’s husband died, he made her promise she would be OK. She kept that promise, rebuilding a joyful life without him while cherishing her memories. Now she offers a helping hand to those on a similar journey. Hiking the Pack Line provides practical advice and a workbook section for those who want to create—or re-create—lives that nourish them after devastating loss. Foreword by clinical psychologist & publisher Peggy Elam, Ph.D.
Praise for Hiking the Pack Line
“Written by a ‘take charge of your own life’ woman,
this upbeat book walks you through the loss of a spouse,
partner, beloved friend, or even a bad divorce.
Great reading and very useful workbook!”
former publisher of Owls Magazine
“I first met Bonnie shortly after she lost Jan
and was just at the beginning of figuring out her life.
Both her pain and her determination to rebuild her life were evident then,
and watching her succeed in making a new life over the years has been inspiring.
I love the mix of personal sharing, encouragement, and very practical advice in her book.
The addition of the workbook gives her readers that next step,
that understanding of how to turn the book’s advice into action,
that is so often lacking. I hope anyone, both men and women,
who are struggling with this major change finds the book
and gives themselves the time not only to read it,
but to work through the exercises.”
Adventures in Good Company
“Bonnie Shapbell has not merely written a book.
Rather, she has shared from the depths of her inner being.
She has shared from her pain, her anguish, and her healing.
She has done this while keeping her true target audience in mind:
The heart of her reader.”
