--Mail on Sunday
Just after midnight the household was woken by a policeman who had come to tell them that Jeremy’s wife, Lizzie, who had been away teaching at a summer school, was dead. She had been murdered.
This is the candid, heartrending story of how Jeremy and his girls faced the worst thing that could possibly happen and, bit by bit and piece by piece, put their lives back together.
It's a story of how Daddy became Mummydaddy and of the pitfalls along the way, from how much to tell your children about their mother's violent death to the practicalities of knowing what they like in their packed lunch; from helping your children to grieve when your own grief is so sharp it threatens to overwhelm you to making sure that they brush their teeth and comb their hair.
It's a story full of tears, but also of love and family and redemption.
