See You Soon: A mother's story of drugs, grief and hope
Our price: £6.50

by Philippa Skinner. Foreword by Jackie Pullinger.

Facing up to her son's death in Hong Kong after a heroin overdose posed many challenges for Philippa Skinner. When Jim died, aged 21, her faith in a loving God was challenged as never before and now she had to ask many painful questions.

This book is a personal reflection on her experience of grief following the sudden loss of her son, and on the need to learn to live with unanswerable questions. It opens our eyes to the heartbreak of families who suffer loss through addiction. Too often, their despair is sharpened by anxiety that their loved one will be harshly judged by a culture that stigmatizes those with addictions, while failing to see the person and the story beneath.

Philippa Skinner is the mother of four adult children, and at different times a nurse, a teacher and now a counsellor.
