In July 2012, while out enjoying a cycle with his family, Kadian Harding was killed in a tragic accident. His father, author and journalist, Thomas Harding, witnessed it all. In the immediate aftermath Thomas began to write to deal with the loss, writing his memories of his son, his family’s struggle to adjust to their new reality and trying to make sense of his loss. Kadian Journal is the result.
To mark the paperback publication of Kadian Journal, author Thomas Harding and his wife Deb, spoke to Julia Samuel, Founder Patron and Trustee of Child Bereavement UK, about writing to deal with grief and the journey he and his family took after the death of their son, Kadian in 2012.
Kadian Journal, Thomas Harding (Windmill) is available now.
