Review this Book

She’s just… Alice


Alice Whittaker was never able to celebrate her 6th Birthday. 

Sister to two older brothers, daughter of devoted parents; Alice’s family, in one sense, was ordinary, their story together is totally extraordinary. 

Dying of a condition that was never fully understood, or diagnosed, Alice’s fleeting life and early death in 2012 is a story that needed to be told. 
‘She’s just… Alice’ chronicles a family battling together to make sense of illness, love, life and eventually death. Yet in the midst of real sadness, Alice’s story is one of hope. 

Read this true account of one family fighting together, keeping their trust in God, through the most bitter of times.

All author proceeds that come from the sale of this book are going to a charity called Rosy, based in Oxford. They provide nursing care for sick youngsters and fund additional respite nursing care at home for children with chronic, life-limiting or terminal illnesses in Oxfordshire. They also provide equipment for children, which can improve their day-to-day lives, and a counselling service for families who are affected by having a child who is suffering from an illness requiring respite care.

There are books.....and then there are books that are exceptional. She,s Just Alice is just that .... exceptional. Alice weaves her way into our hearts minds and soul with an uncanny beauty. Alice leaves her perfect imprint behind with total joy and beauty. Considering Alice lived for only five years this is a big claim, but read the book to see what I mean. Joanna Whittakers writing is honest, powerful and incredibly engaging. A magical book.
