My wishes for The Grief Handbook

When I wrote The Grief Handbook, I had a few secret wishes in my heart.

I wished it could be the book I wanted when my mom died: something kind and empathetic, that would hold out a hand and guide me through the worst days.

I wished it could be small and friendly enough to carry around in your handbag, pull it out at a coffee shop and read it, have it as a soothing touchstone on bad days.

And I wished it could be affordable enough to buy without a second thought – something to gift friends, family members, colleagues, almost-strangers…

This weekend, I’ve had all these wishes come true in the form of messages from strangers who have read my book, and it gives me goosebumps and shivers and that exploding heart feeling you get when you really, deeply want something and it comes true. Thank you thank you thank you.
