A collection of poetry, fiction and essays compiled by a journalist and a social worker, both of whom have lost a child. This book explores the shock, the grief and the search for meaning that come with the death of a child.

Reader Review…

“The name Anam Cara is relating to the idea that we are all Soul Friends, the book is lovely and John O’Donoghue explains how your Anam Cara understands and knows how you are feeling, with your Anam Cara you can be yourself… I think that is how I feel when we are together as bereaved parents, there is no pretense, we can say what we really feel!”
