The Book

Losing You, Finding Me

One woman’s crusade to save her brother and ultimately herself.

‘Syd was a warrior, a fighter, a hero – but I became acutely aware that it all came at a high price. A price I was no longer willing to pay.’

Do you live your life to please others? Have you ever had a niggling feeling that the path you’re on isn’t your own?

That somehow, somewhere you took a wrong turn and now it’s too late to turn back.

In this book, Kay takes us with her on a deeply intimate and transformative journey from deep grief to personal freedom. She helps to awaken us all to the possibility of living a truly authentic and unapologetic life in a world that so often tries to dictate who we should be.

This is a truly inspiring account of one woman’s crusade to save her brother and ultimately herself.

Utterly raw and vulnerable, Kay shows us all that we only get this one precious life, and we should never waste a moment of it.
