When I Left

Aly has experience in writing for children, but when it comes to the much anticipated When I Left, Aly has out-done herself. The book is written for children who have lost someone special in their life. Aly relates to children who are struggling with the loss of a close friend or family member by dedicating the book to her Nana, who passed away when she was five. By reliving her methods of coping with this loss and remembering the beautiful spirit of her Nana, Aly is able to comfortably handle this difficult subject matter in a way that children can understand. She hopes this upcoming book which contains beautiful illustrations, by Marilyn Walsh (mother-in-law), can help children dealing with loss, feel that their loved one is watching over them and keeping them safe and on the right path. Experience the rainbows, moon beams, and hugs that make this book a one-of-a-kind experience for children.

Book Reviews

Fiona B (Yarraville)
Thank you Aly for such a beautiful book, it is a very child friendly way to explain a very emotional and hard topic with children. Finding the words at the best of times is hard but when highly emotional this book helped me so much. Many tears have been shed reading this book over the last 18 months. Thank you xoxo.

I bought this book for my son when my mother-in-law left us suddenly one night in a car accident. My husband really struggled with her death and found it hard to talk about it. One night he picked this book up and read it to our son, we were all in tears and I honestly felt that it brought us all closer together. My son still picks it to read some nights when he is missing his Nana. Thank you for sharing your story.

Thanks for the book Aly, it's just lovely. It reminded me of when i was about 4, my Nonna passed away suddenly and I was so distraught I didn't get to say goodbye.
