Summary

'It's like no pain I've ever known. She was my soulmate. She was everything to me.... The enormity of it all hit me hardest when I saw the world continuing as normal. You're looking around and saying this is the biggest tragedy of my life, but other people are going to work, they're coming back from work, they're queuing for Starbucks.'

Vinnie Jones the hardman - first on the pitch, then on the screen - is known as a man of commitment and heart, but very few words - and never about feelings. But last year we saw a very different side to a character we all know and love. In July 2019 actor Vinnie Jones tragically lost his wife, Tanya, after her six-year battle with cancer. Despite Tanya's long and often painful fight with cancer, her passing was a devastating shock to all of the family, and Vinnie found himself struggling to cope. 

With this book, Vinnie reflects on the 25 years he spent married to his soulmate, revealing how they met, the family they built and the health battles they fought together. He discusses their devastation on Christmas Eve when they discovered Tanya had brain cancer and the overwhelming struggles he has had since Tanya passed. 

Vinnie is sharing his story in the hope he can encourage others who are struggling with grief to find the help they need to get through these times of unimaginable pain. Vinnie tackles grief honestly and with heart. His story is beautiful, significant and deeply moving and has the potential to make a real difference to the way people, men in particular, talk about loss, grief and tragedy.

True love, Heartbreak and Grief

Emotionally narrated by Vinnie Jones. This book about his love for his wife Tanya and finding the positivity in his grief. What an incredible love story from start to finish. Admittedly, I sobbed through most of it because you can feel the heartache, emotions and strength in Vinnies voice throughout. Well written and definitely one to listen to.

Heartbreaking

A book based on a true life love story was gripped from the first sentence, everybody should feel this kind of love at least once in their lives.

Beautiful and helpful. Thank you.

Honest & real. Lost the love of my life, Samantha, on 28 April 2020. She was only 48. Vinne"s description of the deep grief you carry around is relentless, stubborn & immovable, & truthfully, doesn't decrease over time. You struggle every day, learning to live around it. It's enormous impact on your life is earth and heart shattering for ever. The depth of pain you feel every minute of every day is scary, gut-wrenching and unreachable. I am too scared to reach it because I doubt I will come back from it. Samantha and I were best friends for 23 years. Our connection was strong & immovable. We decided to move in together after we both found ourselves single at the same time! We feel deeply in love after 3 months, and then 9 months later she had a massive heart attack in our bedroom and died the same day. Cov19 was at its peak, so I wasn't allowed further than the hospital reception. This killed me. Anyway, the struggle is real, hard and doesn't decrease over time. Thank you Vinnie, you helped me to manage my grief and put it into words. I no longer feel alone knowing that those left behind all go thru the hell. Only those who have lost a loved one understand this relentless pain. It's like nothing else and is sn incomparable experience that stays with you forever. xxx

Angel

Tania will be so proud of you. I could not have read this book I had to listen to you reading it. You gave it the love and sadness that was so special to you all. I listened to books as I do my crafts. While listening to you I’m making thing for Christmas trees while you was talking about angel’s I was making some it was strangely spooky as the ones I’m doing at the moment are for a friend who has had her kidney transplant over 30 years. Thank you for sharing your love it will help with peoples grief I know 😘
