Using her experience of working with bereaved parents, Catherine Seigal looks at how continuing bonds are formed, what facilitates and sustains them and what can undermine them.

Love Untethered: how to live when your child diesLove Untethered: how to live when your child diesOur price: £15.00ViewLove Untetheredby Vanessa May This book is about how Vanessa survived the devastating and life-changing loss of her son. It is also about holding onto hope when it feels like there isn't any. For anyone who is going through a bereavement, (or knows someone who is), 'Love Untethered' could provide a lifeline. It’s an honest and brave account of how you go on after someone important has died. Based on both her personal and professional experience, Vanessa provides advice on making the grieving process a little more bearable when your world has been shattered beyond recognition. She also highlights something often overlooked - that grief affects us profoundly, not only emotionally but sometimes physically and spiritually too.Michael Rosen's Sad BookMichael Rosen's Sad BookOur price: £7.99ViewMichael Rosen's Sad Book chronicles Michael's grief at the death of his son Eddie from meningitis at the age of 19. A moving combination of sincerity and simplicity, it acknowledges that sadness is not always avoidable or reasonable and perfects the art of making complicated feelings plain. It wasn't made like any other book either; Michael Rosen said of the text, "I wrote it at a moment of extreme feeling and it went straight down onto the page ... Quentin didn't illustrate it, he 'realized' it. He turned the text into a book and as a result showed me back to myself. No writer could ask and get more than that." And Quentin Blake says that the picture of Michael "being sad but trying to look happy" is the most difficult drawing he's ever done... "a moving experience."The Reluctant SurvivorThe Reluctant SurvivorOur price: £8.00ViewA journey through the first year of grief, told in verse and coming straight from the heart.by Dany Sherlock
