I hope that my words encourage you to let go of fortitude and resilience from time to time, to reach out to someone and to ask them to listen while you remember with love, and maybe even ask them for help.

In “Breathing While Drowning: One Woman’s Quest for Wholeness” (published by Balboa Press AU), author Veronica Strachan charts her 20-year journey back to life after the death of her young daughter, Jacqueline Bree. She also shares her raw journals, tools, inspirations and lessons to help and inspire readers to do the same in their own life.

By sharing her personal story, Strachan hopes to help guide others who are struggling to find their way beyond grief. “My book is about hope and courage and finding your way home – to whoever, wherever and whatever that is for you,” she explains.

Using her own journey as a base to reflect upon how she navigated through personal trauma, Strachan equips the reader with a number of resources and insights into dealing with overwhelming emotions.

“I hope that my words encourage you to let go of fortitude and resilience from time to time, to reach out to someone and to ask them to listen while you remember with love, and maybe even ask them for help,” says Strachan. “There will be a way out of the ocean when you're ready. Take your time.”
