365 days past the traffic lights (2019)

Independently published

How do you cope with the death of a parent at 24 years old? The time when you’re somewhere between independence and reliance on parents, figuring out who you are and what you want to do, and trying to maintain friendships and a social life when your world is crumbling around you and no one understands. Rose Taylor straddled two worlds; living in both a picturesque English village and an adventure filled Hollywood lifestyle in Los Angeles. But in late 2017 life hurtled her into a new realm, one that was immersed in medical settings and put her life on hold. In this compelling and emotive memoir, Rose Taylor explores the first 365 days following the death of her father. She writes frankly about the moment of diagnosis, the experience of becoming a carer for a parent and sheds light on the psychological and physical symptoms of bereavement. The book takes the reader between London, Atlanta and Los Angeles weaving together the experience of grieving and a narrative of reconciling memory and loss. The book ultimately offers a voice for grieving young adults, with the aim of showing them they are not alone. (Publisher)
