For those who know loss, there is a moment in time for which everything else is either before or after.
Dominique Williams was a creative, kind and exuberant twenty-year-old who lived life to the fullest and craved adventure.
Her sudden death caused by a car crash on her way to a music festival in 2009 left a hole in the lives of those who held her dear.
Daughter of Mine is a window into the journey Dominique's mother Lesley embarked on as she grappled with grief and loss whilst finding the courage to make sense of a new life without her daughter.
Lesley found comfort, therapy and clarity through her poetry and her writing demonstrates the never ending love a mother holds for her child, even in their absence.
This unforgettable collection of verses will help you to understand the emotions no parent should ever have to experience and the strength it takes to 'keep dancing' when they do.
