"Dr. Pomerance delivers an outstanding
piece of work full of deep insight into and illumination
of the intricate and powerful connection man has with
his loved animal companions. With great sensitivity and
compassion, she reminds her readers of the profound and
invaluable lessons about life and death we can learn by
observing, spending time with, and caring for our animal
friends. Finding Peace helps us to cope with and recover
from the deep sense of loss and grief we experience when
a loved animal companion dies. It also teaches us how to
cope with losses of any kind. Readers young and old will
deeply appreciate and find comfort and support from this
beautiful and inspiring book."

book is written with caring and compassionate wisdom
that helps children and adults alike find an
awareness of eternal life and peace. Embracing love
and life with warmth and truth, Dr. Pomerance
reminds us of the importance of loving as well as
letting go. With our animal family and our human
family we experience grief and loss, yet we are
shown that no matter what the experience, Peace is a
choice and is possible."

"Finally, a book by someone who understands the
deep bonds so many of us share with our companion animals, and
it lets us know it is okay to grieve just as we would for any
other family member. Dr. Pomerance knows that the changes we go
through during these difficult times are normal and takes us
through the grieving process. Thank you, Dr. Pomerance!"

"Dr. Pomerance’s book gives recognition and honor to the depth
and significance of the unique bond between us and our animal
companions. In a world of complex human relationships fraught
with expectations and conditions, our animal companions offer us
pure, uncomplicated, unconditional love. They give us what our
fellow humans cannot. This makes the loss of such a companion
especially devastating. When our society tells us “it is just a
dog,” Dr. Pomerance turns around and gives us permission not
only to grieve for our lost companion, but to express our grief
without apology. Bravo!"

"Not until you have experienced the tragic loss of a pet
who has become a member of your family can the true depth of the
grieving process be understood. This book is a must-read for
anyone going through that process and it authenticates the
feeling that it is normal and acceptable to mourn the loss of a
pet. Finding Peace is well written and illustrated, and I would
highly recommend it for anyone who has lost a family companion."
