Heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting,Gary's collection of tender illustrations, born from the tragic loss of his wife, document his grief and family life, with grace and beauty. When his wife, Joy, died very suddenly, a daily drawing became the way Gary dealt with his grief.

'If ever there was something created from the heart, this is it. A remarkable book that charts the journey of grief with warmth, compassion and humour. For those of us who have experienced loss, it offers comfort and hope. Despite the story of loss, there is so much joy in these pages.' - Jason Watkins, BAFTA award-winning actor.

Finding Joy is the story of how one family learned to live again after tragedy.
