Life After

by Evonne Madden

Having to deal with the loss of loved ones is something that unites us all. Yet we rarely even talk about it.

Life After shares the raw, intimate and inspiring stories of how more than 60 ordinary and well-known Australians have recovered from heart-breaking loss and have rebounded to live fuller lives than they once thought possible.

Full of optimism and spirit, this book features famous people who have lost loved ones, people whose loved ones were famous, the bereaved behind our biggest news stories and a gamut of experiences from every walk of life in Australia.

About the Author

Evonne Madden was raised in country Victoria before university took her to Melbourne where she has spent most of her adult life. She is a journalist, and mother to Joseph and Heidi.

Evonne was motivated to create this book after the death of her husband, Paul, aged 37. She found grief quite overwhelming and quickly discovered it’s a topic that is not often discussed openly. As a journalist, asking others how they had coped – when she was struggling to do so herself – felt like the natural thing to do. Life After is Evonne’s first book.
