Two moving, personal stories about love, loss, and trauma.
In The Last Act of Love, Cathy Rentzenbrink writes about the summer of 1990, when her much-loved brother Matty was knocked down by a car. His family willed him to survive, not yet knowing that there are some fates worse than death.
Standing on a beautiful Jamaican beach, Decca Aitkenhead watched as her partner drowned, having swum out to save their son from the same fate. In All At Sea, Decca writes movingly about how her family’s life changed forever.
Decca Aitkenhead is an award-winning journalist for The Guardian, and has written for many national newspapers and magazines. Cathy Rentzenbrink is books editor at The Bookseller.
