The Group: Seven Widowed Fathers Reimagine Life chronicles the challenges and triumphs of seven men who were left to raise young children after their wives died. For four years, the men took part in an innovative support group that the authors led at the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill. The men encouraged each other through painful setbacks and celebrated increasingly frequent successes as they learned to parent on their own and embrace life anew.

In the tradition of the best bereavement memoirs, The Group shares poignant personal stories of loss and adaptation. The book also describes how the group itself transforms the men in unexpected way. Through the rich experiences of the seven fathers and their interactions with each other, Rosenstein
and Yopp bring to the public the latest developments in grief resolution, psychological resilience, meaning-making, and post-traumatic growth.

The Group traces a compelling journey that no book has captured before. The men's touching efforts to care for their families, grieve for their wives, and reimagine their futures will inspire anyone who has suffered a major loss.
