Walking Through Treacle
24 Poems by Safina Powell
for Joe

On 22 September 2019 Safina Powell's life changed. Walking Through Treacle is her personal expression of grief following the sudden, devastating and tragic loss of her son Joe.

Through 24 poems and letters to Joe, Safina chronicles the first year of grief after the death of her beloved son.

"This dear little book gives you an insight of the immense pain and grief of losing your precious son. Especially at those times when you feel like screaming , not wanting to be in the exclusive club and just giving up. Safina has made her poems so accurate and eloquent. It is beautifully illustrated, too".
Jane - bereaved parent

"It is all so beautifully written, the very fitting title & wonderful illustrations. I know I will read this book many times and treasure it forever. Words resonated with me, it was like reading my own mind It is desperately sad but also so wonderfully inspiring".
Ann - bereaved parent

"I can identify with your loss. I feel your pain in every word. Thank you so much for your book".
Helena - bereaved parent

"In sharing her story, Safina gave us all such a selfless gift, helping us know Joe more and gain some insight into her experience. Very moving and full of love".
Louise - bereaved sibling
