Every Parent of an adult child’s nightmare – you’ve made it. Your child is grown up. He’s got a great job, living a full and happy life overseas. You don’t have to worry about him like you did when he was young. And then a call from halfway across the world. Something terrible has happened…
I've been reading your book and finding it very powerful, especially as a mother of boys. Thank you for writing it and sharing your story. I can see it will be enormously helpful for many mothers for many years to come.

I have finally found time to read Motherling. I found your story and the story of Raif very emotionally moving and generous and felt strongly engaged by the narrative - I wanted to go with you every step of the way. I also enjoyed re-living sections of the Camino - lovely evocations of place and of people. My favourite insight was on pg 269 where you said: ‘There is enough space between my ribs for emotions, peacefulness and mindfulness. It is the same space that expands when I walk.’
Thank you for Motherling - I am sure it will find a home in many hearts,
All best wishes,
Patti Miller author of The Joy of High Places (among others)
