'If I were to look closely at the jagged edges of my fragmented heart, I'm sure I'd see that some spaces now shine with gold. And that is what he left for me.'_______________________'An extraordinarily brave, honest and tender book' RACHEL CLARKE'Full of strength and hope' KATE MOSSE'The most beautiful thing I have ever read' TOM BRADBY'Extraordinary' ANITA RANI, WOMAN'S HOUROn the 17th November 2019, Grey Atticus Fox was born, nine weeks early, to Georgie and Mike in a Kent hospital. Heart wrenching, cathartic, life-affirming, this is her account of the 21 days they had together, and its aftermath - the search to make sense of unimaginable loss.

It bears witness to both the confusion and the clarity that accompany great pain, and stands as a testament to empathy, care and humanity when life is at its hardest. 'He was looked after by strangers who became family, and he saw more kindness, more love, in twenty-one days than some might see in a lifetime.

For his brief moments in this world, he experienced all of the very best things it can offer.'Georgie's spare, intimate and at times surprisingly comic writing offers an extraordinary message of hope.

If Not For You is about the redeeming power of love, even in our darkest hour.
