The Red of my Blood
by Clover Stroud
From the journalist and critically acclaimed author of My Wild and Sleepless Nights comes a raw and penetrating memoir about surviving the loss of her sister and about embracing death as an essential, and enriching, part of life.
'Can death bring something good to my life?'
A few weeks before Christmas, Clover's sister died of breast cancer, aged forty-six. Just days before, she had been given years to live. Her sudden death split Clover's life apart. The Red of My Blood charts Clover's fearless passage through the first year after her sister's death.
It is a book about what life feels like when death interrupts it, and about bearing the unbearable and describing an experience that seems beyond words. Lyrical, hopeful, it is also about the magical way in which death and life exist so vividly beside one another, and the wonder of being human.
