Past: Perfect! Present: Tense! Insights From One Woman’s Journey As The Wife Of A Widower

By Julie Donner Andersen


Sensitively written by Julie Donner Andersen, a WOW herself, the book is a clear and honest portrayal of the roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs that most new WOWs endure. It includes reassuring quotes from fellow WOWs who validate Ms. Andersen’s research. The author also empathetically describes the heart of a widower and how the WOW can relate compassionately to his grief issues while at the same time, protecting her own sense of security, self worth, and dignity.

Best of all, Past: Perfect! Present: Tense! offers valuable and sensible advice about how to deal with WOW-related issues in marriage, such as what to expect and how to deal with guilt feelings, grief triggers, living with the past, interpersonal relationships with the late wife’s family and with the rest of society, becoming a WOW stepmother, and setting personal WOW boundaries. The chapter called “Embracing The Late Wife” is both compelling and moving. There is also a funny yet informative chapter devoted to how society can best approach a WOW, what to say and do in her presence, and what not to say and do.

Ms. Andersen has penned a book that will surely be a comforting resource for newlywed WOWs, future brides of widowers, and widowers contemplating remarriage. Past: Perfect! Present: Tense! will also be a wealth of fascinating information for the non-WOW as well.
