Product description

This book is the story of a grieving process in prose, poetry and pictures. Nick Owen met Gillian Darwent in 2003. They fell passionately in love and started to live together in Charlbury, Oxfordshire, within a few months of their first meeting. In 2004 they were hand-fasted in a Druid ceremony among the prehistoric megaliths of Avebury at the winter solstice. They were legally married a few days later in Oxford. They rented a stone cottage in the hamlet of Over Norton, in the north Cotswolds, where they lived and worked until Gill's sudden death, aged 47, in 2009. Nick was very much aware of Gill's physical and mental frailty. He also knew that her level of alcohol consumption was sufficient to threaten her life. Nick worked part time, supervising counsellors of people with serious and life threatening illnesses. He also worked for Mind, helping people create poetry and pictures as part of their way of dealing with mental distress.
