About this product
- DescriptionA wife at breakfast, a widow by lunch...In 2011, after an unusually difficult year in a relationship which spanned more than two decades, author Helen Bailey, andher husband JS, arrived in Barbados for a much-needed break.The moment the plane touched down on this idyllic Caribbean island, Helen and JS relaxed, and tensions faded away. Everything was perfect. But only a few days in to the holiday, Helen found herself kneeling on the Barbadian beach, watching helplessly as paramedics tried to resuscitate JS - who'd been out for a swim in unexpectedly strong currents. Their attempts were futile. JS had drowned, leaving Helen widowed,four-thousand miles from home, and wearing only her brand new bikini.In this witty, poignant and sage series of events based on her phemenally popular blog, Planet Grief, Helen takes her readers with her on her journey through life after inconceivable loss - accompanied by her faithful dachshund, Boris. Honest, searing, yet often laugh-out-loud funny, this is a compelling story of a marriage, and a truly life-affirming testament to the power of survival.
