Armin Lear Publishes Second Edition of Acclaimed Book; Help and Hope for Young Widows

Here you will find authentic, candid, trustworthy, and pragmatic advice; promising that although the landscape of life may forever be changed, the future can still hold purpose, beauty, and magic.”
— Kristen Higson-Hughes, Women's World Magazine
BOULDER, CO, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2021 / -- An updated version of the acclaimed book, WIDOWS WEAR STILETTOS is now available. Carole Brody Fleet and Dr. Syd Harriet deliver practical and emotional advice for young widows in this latest release from Armin Lear Press.

In WIDOWS WEAR STILETTOS, the authors fuse humor with compassion, gently taking readers into considering how to find their voice, stand their ground, handle the logistics of becoming widowed, talk with their children, and deal with myriad "firsts."
Carole Brody Fleet—herself widowed at a young age—notes, “Widowhood is a frightening prospect for any woman, but becoming a widow in one's forties, thirties, or twenties can be terrifying. We set out to deal sensitively with problems and questions facing the young widow as well as give straightforward guidance.”

WIDOWS WEAR STILETTOS recognizes and discusses the many issues facing widows todayregardless of a widow’s age, technical marital status, sexual orientation, length of time married, length of time widowed or the specific circumstances surrounding spousal death.
Rather than discussing grief exclusively, the book also addresses many other vital issues: practical (financial and legal transitioning); emotional (dealing with personal transitory feelings, helping young and adolescent children through the grief of losing a parent); health, beauty and self-awareness (healthy diet, exercise, hair, makeup and fashion); and even entertaining (resumption of dating, the unsolicited opinions of others, and so on). The authors provide useful education and actionable advice with kindness, empathy and when appropriate, a wry humor.

For 12 years, the first edition has a perennial hit both commercially and critically, earning reviews and endorsements such as these:
