When we suffer the loss of a loved one, the pain can be unbearable. The experience often leads us to seek comfort in the written word. This heartfelt and moving collection of poems by Shakinah Baah, are borne out of the unexpected loss of her mother, Gladys. Her hope and prayer are that they will bring comfort to all those going through bereavement.
Shakinah was born in Ghana but was brought up in the UK. Although England is very much `home', she visits Ghana often and loves its people and culture. She has a medical background, but recently discovered her passion for writing poetry.
She is married with a son and lives in the South East of England.
