A flat lay photograph of the book Saying Goodbye by Zoë Clark-Coates on a piece of blue felt surrounded by white rose petals and blue pom pom flowers - Saying Goodbye by Zoë Clark-Coates - A Review and Interview with the Author - Mrs H's favourite things

There were moments when I was reading Zoë Clark-Coates’ first book, Saying Goodbye when I felt like Zoë had captured all my emotions about our four miscarriages.
