Publisher's Summary

Simon Thomas (former Blue Peter presenter and, for so long, the face of Sky Sports Football) reveals how grief nearly destroyed him in his heartbreaking memoir. When Simon lost the woman he had loved for 16 years, the future he'd imagined for their happy family disappeared for ever. Gemma died from acute myeloid leukaemia, just three days after being diagnosed. 

In Love, Interrupted, Simon is brutally honest about his journey through grief, and opens up about how close he came to ending his own life. Simon didn't know how to carry on without Gemma; he just knew that, for the sake of his eight-year old son, he had to find a way.... 

Love, Interrupted is a moving story of love, loss, faith and family.

A moving, honest listen

Having read about Simon and Ethan’s loss I followed him on Instagram and watched his posts throughout 2018. Through the book it was amazing to hear the wonderful stories about who Gemma was and really get a better understanding of their life together. It was so brave of Simon to share his grief process in such an unfiltered way. A fantastic read for anyone who wants to understand grief and mental health better and most importantly what you can do to help those going through that journey. I cried, I smiled, I laughed, having finished the book I am left with a lovely sense of hope. Thank you Simon for sharing your story.

Heartfelt beautifully written

Such a sad story so well written and narrated by Simon himself, I cannot imagine the grief of losing the mother of your child.
As a man of faith myself I can relate to the peace he talks about, and as Christians we’re not perfect we do struggle but ultimately we have to trust in God.
Even if you don’t have a faith this book is for you as it challenges the everyday things we all take for granted.
Thank you Simon I now look at my wife a children through different eyes.
God bless you and Ethan may God bless you both richly

revealing and raw

A brutally honest account of a man and his son dealing with the loss of the most important woman in their lives. An emotional journey that's has love and faith at the centre.
