Perhaps the only thing that can impact and shape a woman's life with the same power as her mother's love and guidance is her mother's death. In 'Without My Mum', Leigh Van Der Horst shares her own honest, heartfelt story of losing her beloved mother to cancer in 2008. She invites us on a journey that is at times heartbreaking and others heartwarming, yet is ultimately comforting and inspiring. With genuine warmth and candor, Leigh tells of her transformative passage through devastating grief to rediscover and redefine her own identity.

'Without My Mum' reveals the sisterhood amongst motherless mothers. Featuring stories from mothers around the world, Without My Mum offers resounding reassurance that no motherless mother is ever alone. Leigh Van Der Horst further reaches out to her motherless 'sisters' supported by contributions of motherly wisdom from a collection of encouraging mothers world wide together with a host of inspiring popular personalities such as Jools Oliver, Lisa Wilkinson, Megan Gale, Amanda de Cadenet and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

The motherless mother's heart needs to know that she can and will move through grief to reclaim a fulfilling, grateful and loving life. 'Without My Mum' addresses this need by providing a definitive source of emotional and practical resources specifically for women dealing with the loss of their mum.

"A wonderful book that captured my heart in the first few paragraphs. 'Without My Mum'is a moving account of a beautiful, close relationship between a mother and her treasured daughter as they are forced to say goodbye. Leigh's candid, humorous and heartfelt narrative, together with a collection of stories and wisdom from others who have walked a similar path, are authentic, uniting and ultimately inspiring. It's a laugh-out-loud, sob-a-little-uncontrollably kind of book that will resonate with any parent or carer. I adored it!'- Jools Oliver."
