Mum’s Way: A Heartbreaking story of family, loss and love

By Ian Milthorpe with Lynne Barrett-Lee

The heart-breaking but inspiring story of a mum – and her legacy of enduring love.

Childhood sweethearts, Ian and Angie wanted nothing more than a big family. But eight children later and aged just forty-eight, Angie fell seriously ill. When she was told her illness was terminal, the welfare of her family became her only focus.

Raising that many children would be a big job for any couple; to raise them alone, without their mother, was a superhuman task for Ian. But this was exactly what Angie wanted him to be able to do. So, in the last months of her life, Angie compiled a list of ‘rules’ to guide Ian in the future: from lunchbox favourites to bedtime rituals and favourite lullabies, Angie’s manual gave Ian the strength and certainty that he could fulfil her wishes when she was gone.

Mum’s Way is an inspiring, if heart-rending, story of love that lingers long in the memory. Bound to stir emotions, it is above all life-affirming and uplifting.
