About this deal

I honestly felt like I was on the journey with them and was lost for words at multiple points in the book, whenever there was a tiny bit of hope in Derek’s progress I felt so positive, even though I knew the updates from his current state. Words can simply not express how I feel after reading this book. My hat goes off to Kate & my heart goes out to her. I did not want to put the book down as I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. I loved reading about who supported her through the tough times and how everyone came together for Kate and her family. And when I finished the book I just felt like I wanted a ‘now’ update.

Given Derek's serious circumstances I found the openness encouraging, reasuring & helpful but most importantly not overwhelming.Despite the sad content this book is very inspiring and makes us realise the destruction that COVID has caused. In this intimate book, Kate shares her deeply personal story. As well as recounting how the illness took hold of their lives, she writes about how she is coping with the uncertainty of their future, how she's supporting her children through this traumatic time, how she has found strength in community and how she strives to hold on to hope even at the darkest of times. Covid-19 has affected everyone across the country in so many ways and Kate hopes that by revealing her own personal experience, it will give comfort to others. By sharing the lessons she has learnt along the way, it will help us all begin to try to re-build our lives.

What is sad, is that even though he pulled through the Covid he has been left with considerable disabilities, including a minimal state of consciousness and he hasn’t pulled through (well only in small snippets). That in itself is worse than the Covid as it’s prolonged, and doctors aren’t sure how long it will last. I watched the documentary recently, and was intrigued to hear further of how much her and her family have suffered. This is a book that I can thoroughly recommend to others, it is definitely an eye opener in more ways than one. Kate had and still has 'Hope' that all will be right for Derek and that he will make the best recovery that he can, as he continues on what is going to be an extremely long and hard journey into the future.Heartbreaking and heartwrenching. Was in awe from beginning to end. Most of this was so hard to listen to, and you will cry like a baby, again and again. What a family! What a human being! Kate Garraway should be a Dame. I wish this family wellness, hopes fulfilled and prayers answered. This is such a heartbreaking read. If you want a good cry, this is the book to make you have the said cry. Since publication, Derek (Kate’s husband) has come home, but he was the longest surviving patient of Covid.

Reading about Derek's life before he became ill and how the virus has overrun his mind and body is very sad. The family have somehow remained strong through this challenging time, an inspiration to us all.Having followed the very sad story of this family I was interested to read 'The Power of Hope'. It was an insightful read, as we continue to live through this Pandemic.
