Anyway is a deeply personal account of the author's experience of the grief of losing her mother. Through honest and moving diary entries over the course of the months and years following the loss of her mother, Jones-McGill records her feelings and how they change over time. From the deep pain of fresh grief, and the struggle to accept death, to the memories and personal realisations brought up by grief.
Anyway is a book which aims to help others to process their grief, without shying away from the reality of how difficult it will be. It is a testament to the power of putting down one's feelings in writing, and how journaling can help the grieving to reflect and process what they are going through.

Pamela Jones-McGill has studied and had a career in psychology, psychotherapy, and personal development, and has a particular interest in relationships, parenting and communication. Pamela works with children to support them through their educational and social journey. Pamela is married and lives with her husband in Kent. Pamela Jones-McGill believes that parenting, the relationship with our parents and our personal relationships can offer us the greatest insight and information into our own psychology and our relationship with the world. Pamela's invaluable book gives us an insight into the challenge, journey, and process of grief, and gives us the opportunity for greater spiritual and personal awakening, using loss as a time for kindness, nurturing and introspection of our own physical and mental being, raising our awareness into such discovery. Pamela practises and promotes the ritual of journal writing and the listing of daily gratitude. ‘Anyway' is a journey through loss, grief, reflection, and the spiritual process. Pamela hopes that the reading of this book will help others to process and heal from their own difficult and often traumatic losses in life/human experiences. Pamela advocates the practice of journaling as a way of containing, directing, and reflecting on our personal and private thoughts, and also the practice of listing our daily gratitudes which can inform and highlight the positives in our lives, especially through hardship. The reflection practice and process give us better understanding of who we are and the impact we and others have on our lives.
