“Saturday Night Widows” tells story of woman taking grief into her own hands

Journalist Becky Aikman’s new book, “Saturday Night Widows”, chronicles her journey from young widow to a woman learning to heal and finding love again.

Voice of Russia’s Jamila Bey talks with author Becky Aikman about her new book:


From getting kicked out of a grieving widow’s support group to rounding up a motley crew of friends who wanted to find joy again, the book explains her own journey in a culture which isn’t particularly good at dealing with helping people to cope with death.
