Books about suffering loss but being better for it

I'm going through some things that have both brought me a lot of sadness and presented an opportunity to change my life for the better. I'm wondering if there are any books the MeFi hive can recommend, novels, memoirs or otherwise. They should be about people who have suffered loss, perhaps enduring shame, but emerging better for it.

I've written on Ask MeFi before about having lost my fiance and the ground shifting from beneath my feet for it. So lost love books would be good, but anything along the lines of emerging a victor after being uprooted would be fine.
