A MUM from Morton has dealt with the pain of losing her teenage daughter by releasing a novel in her memory.

Jae De Wylde, of Church View Close, lost her 15-year-old daughter to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome in 1999.

When a routine operation in 2004 left Mrs De Wylde with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, the recovery process had to begin again.

Inspired by these events and channelling these negatives into something meaningful, she has now released The Thinking Tank.

She said: “The book deals with bereavement, betrayal and the rare opportunity for a second chance.

“I wanted people to see your past does not have to dictate your future.”

The title relates to the hyberbaric oxygen tanks that she spent many hours a week in to recuperate from her CRPS.

Mrs De Wylde wrote most of the book in Dubai.

She said: “The thing all the reviews have in common is that it’s a real page turner.

“It deals with difficult topics, but it is very accessible to everybody.”

The book can be bought from all Walker Bookshops or online at http://www.amazon.co.uk
