The experience of sudden death when someone is young is more common than we imagine. This book addresses this issue with courage, honesty and truthfulness. People search for resources in such challenging times. At Grief Encounter, we are delighted to add such an excellent book to our resources. It takes courage to share this difficult time in your life in such a clear, sensitive and open way. ‘Is Daddy Coming Back in a Minute?’ will be a valuable stepping stone in the journey of grief to share with other families whose parent dies suddenly and unexpectedly.Shelley Gilbert - Chief Executive Officer - Grief Encounter Project http://www.griefencounter.org.uk/
