“Until that day, when I held my dead son in my arms for hours while waiting for forensic pathology to come and fetch his body, I had never imagined the pain a mother goes through when she loses the child she birthed,”

she says in an interview with Drum.

In 2015, two days after celebrating her birthday, Florence lost her 18 month-old son in a drowning accident at a house in Bramley, Johannesburg. It is from this heart-wrenching incident that the book was born. At the launch, the veteran actress shared chilling and intimate moments of the fateful day with her guests.

The book about grief shares Florence’s pain of losing a child and is the actress’ way of helping other mothers who have gone through this ordeal to heal and overcome their pain. She describes the book as a pouring out and collection of poems and letters written by her during her time of mourning. She posted this piercing post on Instagram last month.

Social media has reacted with heart at Florence’s book offering and shared their love, support and gratitude.

Well done to Florence on her heartwarming and beautifully written book. Do share your thoughts with us.
