See You Soon

Full Product Description

Writing for anyone whose life has been suddenly brought to a standstill by grief and loss, this is Philippa’s honest account of her struggle with the death of her son through a heroine overdose. With the shared experience of anyone recently bereaved, the author stands beside individuals and families through the shock, shame and social stigma that can add further pain to the most painful experience of all.

Through an honest account of her son's death in Hong Kong after a heroin overdose, she reflects on her experience of grief and learning to live with many unanswered and unanswerable questions. Her book opens your eyes to the particular heartbreak of families who suffer loss through addiction - those whose despair is sharpened by the anxiety that their loved one will be harshly judged by a culture that stigmatises addiction.

Philippa Skinner places all of this in the context of her Christian faith and looks at the person as a person and not as an event. Aware of the reality of death in a complex, media obsessed and judgemental society, ‘See You Soon’ includes the extra challenges created by a sudden death - such as media interest and coroner’s courts as well as the role of charities in offering support. This book will be widely welcomed as a companion and support for many who walk the sorrowing path of loss and bereavement.
