After a successful book launch two weeks ago, I have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback on my first book ‘Through A Mother’s Eyes’. My first book signing at http://www.collinsbooksellersedwardstown was also a great day. A nice crowd of people attended where 51 copies of my book were sold. I had set myself a target of selling 50 copies so that was amazing. Thank you to all my friends and family for your support, it means a lot!
I was approached by a lady whom had suffered a stillbirth many years ago, I would estimate she would be in her 50’s. Her daughter-in-law also suffered the same fate recently, and it is to these people I hope my story offers hope. We agreed that the pain is still there, and the grief in essence never leaves. It just slowly subsides, the easiest way to explain it is to liken it to the ocean. In the beginning it is quite fierce, as the waves pound and threaten to engulf you, and almost swallow you up! But as time goes on, it can also be a gentle rolling and rocking rhythm, as it almost seems to tease you, and lull you into a false sense of security. The storm may have passed but the remnants of the aftermath are still present.
Here are a few comments on my book so far:
