In May 2007, while on a family holiday, Bébhinn Ramsay’s husband Alastair woke in the middle of the night with a fever. Just over forty-eight hours later, he died in hospital from a rare complication to a common infection. At the age of thirty-one, Bébhinn had not only lost her soulmate and the father of her two young sons, but also her faith in life.
In this captivating memoir of hope, courage and eternal love, we journey with Bébhinn as she searches for answers and a sense of meaning to her husband’s untimely death, and discover how she comes to find peace and happiness by opening her mind and her heart.

'An inspirational work of courage and intimacy'
Damien Rice
'Written in a deeply personal, but accessible manner, many will find this a truly uplifting memoir of the endless road of real love.'
Irish Catholic
'A profound and deeply moving examination of bereavement that often brings tears to your eyes (but) is far from deperessing ... Ultimately, thanks to her insights, there is also the magic of healing and the realisation that death, even when it happens young, is such a part of life ... Bébhinn Ramsay is such a fluent writer and the sort of honest thinker who takes you beyond the clichés of bereavement and loss'
