Words stumble out, just a few.
How many does it take to say?
"Mum's never coming back,
Gone away."

Heart-wrenching words combined with a family's tale of loss come together in this insightful collection of poems written by Andy TS Cowell. Told from both perspectives of the adult and child, the family suffers through the devastating effects of chemo and hair loss; somehow, they must come to terms with the grief of losing a parent.

Looking at their lives in hindsight, they wonder if it would have been better to have never met each other. Each poignant poem reveals a little more about the family's past, reminiscing about holidays, using music and smells to remember those loved and lost.

Articulate, uplifting and moving, Heart Stones is a captivating collection of poems from the heart that will take you on a family's journey of letting go and self-discovery.

Andy spent most of his adult life working in business but, with a background in art and music, continued his creative output. Having to care for two young children, he lost his job and had time to develop his poetry and writing. Andy hails from Manchester, studied in Liverpool, then moved to Bristol where he lives. He loves the unique blend of being close to two vibrant cities (Bristol and Bath) and a rural environment all around to explore.
