‘If there’s anything I can do…
In 2003 Caroline’s husband Nick Doughty died of oesophageal cancer, leaving her a young widow with two little girls, one aged three, the other 17 months.
Four years later Caroline published this widely acclaimed book, offering her own insight, and thoughts and suggestions from dozens of other widows and widowers of all ages.
In 2020 Caroline republished the book with a PostScript, looking back on her bereavement with the benefit of hindsight. The second edition also includes updated contact details for a raft of charities and support groups, as well as new information on the ‘paperwork’ that needs to be done after a death.
This book is a must read for anyone who has a friend or family member who has lost a partner – old, young, married, in a partnership, straight or gay. It will also provide comfort to anyone widowed and grieving – giving the perspective of many others who have walked that long, bumpy road before.
