Coping with a child's death is traumatic and isolating. A personal and moving story, Dear Isobel tells the truth about that trauma and isolation through the eyes of both parents and shows how, individually, they came to terms with their loss.

The only book of its kind, Dear Isobel was written so that other bereaved parents may feel less alone, and to explain to family and friends how they can best offer their support. Advice on bereavement by a liaison sister at The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, who helped Georgiana and Piers Monckton through Isobel's illness and death, together with an information section containing details of organisations that support the bereaved are also given.

Georgiana was, at the time of writing Dear Isobel, a normal mother who wanted to break the taboo of death, especially that of a child. Discovering that at that time there was very little written on child bereavement gave her the idea of telling her story in the hope that it would help others. Twenty-five years on, she thought it was important to republish Dear Isobel to show how one can get through life, and how she believes she was left a valuable gift from Isobel to help others through healing.
