As Alfie’s first birthday draws near, his mother, Sophie, and her family are forced to confront a past they have been trying to shut away for years. Revisiting painful memories, grief threatens to destroy relationships as Sophie and her daughter, Katie, wrestle with guilt, and Simon, their loving husband and father, can only look on in despair.

Grief’s shadow threatens to overwhelm them all, and Sophie finds herself face to face with her abusive childhood. Will they be able to find a way through their heartache to a place of healing and peace? What will they find at therapy’s end?

  • To say life has its ups and downs is really a bit of an understatement. Every day brings joys and sorrows. Life's learning is about how we do the journey and engage in the reality of life and death. This book brings us a story that gives us insight into how our mind, body and spirit try to deal with these ups and downs and how family and community don't just matter, but are essential to moving on.
