Heart in Hand Books was established in 2016 to help those supporting someone through
their end of life journey. The first book, Someone I Love is Dying, provides practical advice
on what to think about and work through before and after the death of a loved one.

- Practical suggestions for taking care of yourself to help you support and care for your loved one.
