Book Description

18 Sep 2008
On April 13th, 2004 Gloria Hunniford's 41 year old daughter, Caron Keating, died after a secret seven year battle with cancer. The world that had changed with Caron's diagnosis, now shattered. Life had been cruelly interrupted, a black hole opened in Gloria's heart, she was consumed with the unimaginable grief that the loss of a child brings and she was alone. Or so she felt.

Within days of Caron's death letters started to arrive. People who had lost their children felt compelled to write. Strangers understood what she was going through often more than the family and friends standing next to her. There were many, many dark days but the letters kept coming and somehow she managed to do the impossible. Wake up everyday, get out of bed, breath.

The black hole is still there, sometimes as big as ever, but she has found a way to live with it, around it. This is the story of how Gloria and her family survived Caron's death, but it is not only her story. It is written for those who held her while she raged. It is written for all those people who helped her through that first terrible year by writing, but mostly it is written for the many thousands who didnt. Grief is lonely, but as this book shows, you are not alone. Death affects us all at some point. Gloria will never again be the carefree woman she once was, the loss of a loved one is always with you, but so are the living This is how she found her way back to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Book Which I Contributed To....... 22 Sep 2008
By L. Calland VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I was lucky to get this book before it's official release date after having a letter I wrote to Gloria included in this new book.

Off the back of Gloria Hunniford's first book "Next To You" I sent a letter to Gloria saying how amazing the book was, and how the same feelings she had felt losing her daughter, were very similar to the ones I had felt when I lost my dad 5 years ago when I was only 20. After I sent that letter I thought nothing more of it, until I received a letter back a month ago saying Gloria wanted to include part of that letter in this new book. I was very touched and very proud to have my letter included in the book out of over 12,000 letters Gloria received. My dad always dreamt he would be in a book, and from the inspiring words he gave me when he was battling prostate cancer, I have made it a reality. Look out for the letter from "Liam".

Anyway I read this book very quickly, and found it just as good as the first one. This time though it has many of the letters and stories from the people that took the time to write into Gloria and share their own feelings, and show Gloria that she was not going through something on her own. The book details how Gloria began to continue with her life after losing her daughter. The days when you don't want to continue life, but you have to. Grief is a disease and one that you don't fully get over, but learn to live with and this book shows that. You never stop thinking about the person that you lost, but you begin to live some sort of semi normal life.

Anyone who has lost someone dear to them will find this book a comfort, and show that even when you get the most silly feelings,many others will have felt EXACTLY the same. I hope my words in the book help many others going through grief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you 10 Oct 2008
Format:Hardcover
My brother was tragically killed 10 weeks ago, when he was only home for 3 days from where he has been working in Austria. He was a passenger in a car when a some timber fell off a van coming in the opposite direction, came through the window and killed him instantly, leaving the driver unhurt.

My Mum had found huge comfort in reading this book by Gloria. It was recommended to her by my sisters health visitor and she has been reading it on and off since the accident. We have struggled to receive any help from bereavement councellers and Mum wanted to be able to know that others feel the way she is feeling. From reading this book, although Caron dies in totally different circumstances, Gloria went through some of the same feelings which Mum is going through now. I want to thank Gloria for publishing such a great book which has been helping Mum throgh the hardest thing she has ever had to deal with in her life.

Its a shame that we have come across this book in such terrible circumstances but praise Gloria for her writing this book after dealing with the grief of losing her own daughter. No one will ever know the pain this involves unless it has happened to them and to all those who think it another money making book, then they are wrong because this has immensly helped my Mum.

4.0 out of 5 stars some profound and helpful writing 4 Oct 2008
By Suze
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The obvious focus of the book is on dealing with/coping with the death of a child. My reason for reading it is that my wonderful husband suddenly - although perfectly healthy - dropped dead almost two years ago. Whilst much of the book is directed at bereaved parents I found a lot of it extremely helpful - yes, it provoked tears and yes, I did find the slight feeling that Gloria thinks the death of a child is the worst loss rather hard to take. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who has suffered a bereavement that they are finding hard to come to terms with - it has definitely helped me at a difficult time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very emotional 20 Dec 2008
Format:Hardcover
I took this book on holiday with me in the last 2 weeks to read. I found it very emotional reading it. Having lost a baby son 28 yrs ago that lived just 4 days with a hyper plastic left heart. Reading the letters and stories and Gloria's words I now realise that it doesn't matter what age you loose your child, be it 1 day old to 50 yrs old the pain is the same. The feelings and thoughts in this book made me realise I am not alone. Your child is your baby no matter what age they die at. Gloria saw her daughter marry and have two lovely children, I can only wonder if my son would have married by now and had children, what sort of person would he be, what would he look like etc.

I was recommended this book from a lady who I met, who's son died when he was 21. She said that she kept it by her bed and read it when she was able. It's taken her four years to read it.
I lost my daughter in a car crash Oct 2012 aged 19. I downloaded a sample thinking perhaps I'm not ready to read it yet. It soon become very apparent that I needed to read the whole book. It gave the feeling you are not alone. Those feelings are perfectly normal. I must admit there is a big difference between a child dying from an illness to one that is snatched from this world in a car crash. The lack of ability to say good bye is enormous and is one that I struggle with. I guess that is why it was helpful to have other people's stories included. It also made me think perhaps we should all put into writing our own stories but perhaps nobody would want to read them. But maybe they might.
