Poorna Bell is an award-winning journalist, the former executive editor of HuffPost UK and she has been named as one of Balance magazine's Top 100 Wellness personalities. She is a Mind Media Awards judge and has appeared on a number of other judging panels including the Decibel prize for the British Book Awards. Poorna has also previously written for the Guardian, the Telegraph, Red, Cosmo, Stylist and the Observer. For five years she was a regular on BBC radio, and has featured on Sky News, London Live and ITV. She is the author of non-fiction book Chase The Rainbow.
This book broke my heart on every page - until it reached Poorna’s amazing and courageous conclusion about choosing to live in the most sensitive, authentic way. Amidst feeling helpless and almost hopeless about the rising tide of suicide in our modern world, it is incredibly refreshing to read such a raw, personal account of commitment and an enduring love that continues to honour a good man. I couldn’t put down this book and thoroughly recommend it - especially to anyone who has ever loved a broken human or who is one themselves. There is hope. There is learning to be done.

The courage of Poorna Bell carried me along on the journey that she and her late husband faced in a battle with depression and addiction. It is stories such as this one that will enlighten us enough to one day push forward policy and legal reforms that support those suffering with mental health issues.
5.0 out of 5 starsHeart-wrenching, but beautifully written

I laughed and I cried (I cried a lot)... it really is a book everyone ought to read. It's an easy read, insofar as I read it very, very quickly and it's brilliantly written. But it's also one of the most difficult stories I've ever read; it was heart-wrenching.
