Sophies Story by Belinda Whiting was published in 2012 and gives an account of her daughter's life and early death, aged three. Written to assist the mourning process and confronting loss and grief it is nevertheless a celebratory reflection on a young life. Using simple words and a large sans serif typeface, alternating with photographs from the family album, it was written to enhance understanding (particularly for a younger audience) of the reality of a short life that was both ordinary and exceptional.
