In June 2006 my Uncle took his own life.

In the following years my Mother wrote a book of poems chronicling her journey from heartbreak to healing.

This is the blurb from her book:

On a cold dark Tuesday night in June 2006, my youngest brother, George (Hori) committed suicide. In the months and years that followed, I wrote constantly, pouring out my grief, anger, and disbelief that I no longer had my beloved, little brother in my life.

This collection is the “best of” those poems from that time. My hope is that anyone who has ever suffered a sudden, tragic or unexpected death of a loved one may find hope

and healing in my words.

“Weeping may endure for a night buy joy does indeed return in the morning.”

Psalm 30 v 5:b

I have created this page to raise funds so that my Mum can print more books and make them available in Libraries both nationally and internationally and also so that they can be gifted to whanau and friends who have tragically lost a loved one.

I sent out an email to 10 libraries this week and there was a great response.

The "little book" now lives in the Hamilton, Taupo and Rotorua libraries.

Three copies also flew off to Tasmania!

God bless and a big Thank you for all the donations so far.

Go "the little book"
