Don't Take On So Mother
A telling and poignant story is revealed in a series of emails between Helen Billett and Jan Eade whose 40-year-old son, Jamie, a sound engineer living in Thailand, died in 2009.
Their correspondence shows how Jamie and his family coped, as they were faced with living with cancer. Jamie was at home with Jan during the last months of his spirited life.
These emails with poems interspersed capture the love and support given to Jan by friends family and Helen, who often felt inadequate to provide comfort during those dark months. The title is taken from Jamie’s own words frequently uttered to his mother during those difficult months.
