AS SEEN ON ITV'S DOCUMENTARY KATE GARRAWAY: DEREK'S STORY*** The Sunday Times Bestseller ***'Intimate, tender and brutally honest ... a remarkable book.' Decca Aitkenhead, The Sunday Times'These are probably the toughest times we have faced in many decades, and we all have to find within us the strength and resilience to get through and to find happiness and love in our futures, whatever life throws at us.'After first contracting Covid in 2020, Kate Garraway's husband, Derek Draper, fought its devastating impact for almost four years.

He was left needing 24-hour care and long spells in hospital until he sadly passed away in January 2024. In The Strength of Love, Kate explores issues that resonate with so many of us.

She looks at the impact of trauma as well as the importance of resilience, adaptability, curiosity and positivity when recovering from it.

She talks about identity, purpose, how to embrace uncertainty and take back control of our lives.

Through her and Derek's story, she provides comfort and wisdom that will help anyone who has ever felt desperate, lonely or experienced profound loss, or who is fearful about what the future holds. Despite all that she and her family have had to endure, Kate shows us that love truly is the most powerful and resilient emotion of all.
