“Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following a fatal collision in Finchampstead this morning. … The driver of the Nissan, a 33-year-old man from Hampshire, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.” – ITV NEWS

When a young Christian teacher, active and well-loved in his community, was killed during a traffic accident, his mother Lizzie found herself struggling to make sense of all that had happened, particularly from a faith perspective.

In a series of discussions with a fictional counsellor, Lizzie tells her true story, sharing memories of her son that will make you laugh and cry, but also tackling head-on issues of suffering, loss, forgiveness and hope. As we sit in on these counselling sessions, we join Lizzie on her journey of asking questions and deepening our understanding of God, of life and of eternity.

    A gripping read, I was sad to reach the end – it is one of those rare books that you become totally immersed in and I wanted Lizzie’s story to continue. The techniques used to engage the reader in both the counselling and the memories of Robbie’s life were an excellent way of balancing emotional trauma with episodes which make you smile. Lizzie is an extremely talented writer and I can’t wait for her next book.
