    It means to recover from her grief and continue with her life.

    Hello, I'm 'The French', (I am not a teacher),

    for me perhaps Mr.Bill Clinton believe that there is a life after the death. In your example, we don't have the context, but we can imagine he is talking about a young man who has lost his wife.

    Mr.Clinton think that he must continue his life and find another love.

    It's my mind, but I need more passages of the book.

    Have a nive day.
