Am I Still a Mother?

Surviving Life's Cruellest Tragedy – Twice


An ordinary woman: an extraordinary life

In 1979 Helen returns from Algeria to a much-changed UK, where she must juggle sole parenthood with the demands of a successful career. Her life unravels when her older son develops acute leukaemia and his devastated brother spirals into depression and addiction.

For a decade Helen battles to keep her family, and herself, together. Unable to save her sons, can she now save herself?

“Takes us on a devastating yet inspiring journey through the loss of her sons just a few years apart. Writing with searing insight and exceptional beauty, Helen Bouchami reveals how grief gave way to the transformative, healing power of love, and ultimately, to a new sense of meaning in life.” 
Joelle Fraser, author of The Territory of Men and The Forest House

Blackpool Gazette

What a lovely account of terribly tragic events! Helen is faced with the unthinkable more than once. She describes her experiences of motherhood with such Grace.

Loss and grief can take us to a very lonely place. Through strength we can move forward and focus on what we can control and rebuilding our life.
