Love Never Dies
Love Never Dies
I created this emotionally powerful and comforting book for children who have experienced a bereavement. It has had an incredible impact already, on both children and adults and furthermore, Grief Encounter, 2Wish Upon a star and many independent mental health workers have used this book as one of their key resources following a bereavement.
My thoughts are with you if you need this book.
Drop a gift message in with your order and I will pop it in with your book when it's being wrapped up.
"I'm the bereavement lead nurse for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. The book you wrote is amazing. We are always looking for resources to give to bereaved families and siblings. It really is better than anything we have."
"So we read Love Never Dies. A typical 5.5 year old, the first thing she said when I said the title of the book was Daddy died and there we began. Basically by the end, we were both a bit wobbly but she turned to me and said "that book understands." I asked her why and she said "it's right, you do want to look for him even though you know he's not there, he's dead and that means he's gone. And it also knows that Daddy still loves me." I looked at her and she pointed at her chest and said “here in my heart he loves me and I love him”. Then she flung her arms around me and said “I love you, thank you for reading me your special book”, lay down, and within minutes was fast asleep. As I write this the tears are welling. Honestly though, that wouldn't have happened without your book."
"I am a CBT therapist and have given your books to some of my clients to help them. I think they are beautiful. Love never dies has helped some of my clients with grief and Hidden Monsters is great to teach people to take a different attitude to their thoughts by accepting them rather than getting into a battle with them" K.

What inspired me to create this book
Just days after the birth of his little girl, my Dad's friend Jeroen was tragically killed outside his house as he popped out to post some birth announcement cards. I created this illustration and poem, truly hoping I could provide some comfort for Jeroen’s wonderful wife and daughter, Nadja and Fleur. I am so touched that this comfort is being shared around the world to reach other people who need it too.
I bought Love Never Dies for my wonderful friend who has recently lost his grand daughter to sepsis. He is naturally heartbroken and I wanted him to have something to comfort him and give him hope. He loves the book - I read it out to him and he has kept it on his mantlepiece ever since.
Thank you for capturing grief and love and feelings in such a perfect way xxx
I git this beautiful little book to have in memory of my beloved brother. The art and words are wonderful, as is the quality of the book itself.
I'm not entirely sure I have or there are any words that can really do this little gorgeous book justice! It is beautifully illustrated and written and although written with children in mind, most if not all adults will also relate to the message and appreciate the kindness in which it's delivered. Anybody who has experienced the death of someone they love will relate to this! Grief is tough, sometimes it really stings, it feels like you're completely alone, but this little book reminds you that you are not alone and that the love you had will always be there and that is both powerful and comforting. This book is for anybody who has experienced the death of someone they love. Lorna, it's really beautifully poignant, I'm so glad it is out in the world and everybody should have a copy! Xx
Love Never Dies has gorgeous, sweet illustrations and a wonderful message. Plenty of places to stop and chat and use to start conversations about loss and bereavement. I recommend it to parents, carers and anyone who is missing a loved one.
Miss my mum so much & a beautiful book for me for bedtime
