Join us for an evening of highly personal, in-depth conversation with Simon Thomas, as he talks about his new book Love, Interrupted, and gives an insight into early bereavement and how to come to terms with sudden loss.
When Simon Thomas lost the woman he had loved for 16 years, the future he had imagined for their happy family disappeared for ever. Gemma died from acute myeloid leukaemia, just three days after being diagnosed. Afterwards, Simon didn’t know how to carry on. He just knew that, for the sake of his son, he had to find a way …
Love, Interrupted tells the story of a man deeply traumatised by the death of his soul mate. It asks some hard questions about how you carry on when the light of your life has been extinguished. But it also gives immense hope to anybody who has been bereaved. Simon is still learning how to live without Gemma, but the lessons he’s already learnt have given him so much more hope for the future.
