"Unfinished Business a prescriptive, compassionate, user-friendly guidebook for the heart, infused with hard-won wisdom and true concern for the emotional health and authentic well-being of us all. Both science-based and deeply personal, the work in this book helps us to understand our challenging life events from an entirely different perspective and offers us an invitation to lovingly face ourselves, our fears, and our heartbreaks, so we can finally heal from the past and move on. By using her own difficult losses and past traumas Melanie encourages us to organize our complicated histories and take inventory of what was lost so we can enthusiastically grab hold of all that is yet to come. It's an eye-opener. I loved every page."
