    ‘If only I hadn't gone to work that day. If only I had gone to the soccer gala day instead. If only Caroline and India had walked a foot to the left or to the right. If only they had passed those goalposts a second or two sooner, a second or two later. If only India had been walking on Caroline's right, not left.If only.’One June day in 2003 William Verity's beloved three-year-old daughter, India, was killed when she was hit by a falling portable goalpost. She was singing and dancing to her favourite Wiggles song, Rock-A-Bye Your Bear, minutes before the accident. This is a powerful and beautifully written memoir about a family's journey through grief and loss to partial redemption. It is essentially a father's story of coping when faced with unimaginable pain and the crippling grief caused by the sudden death of a loved one. But it is also a compelling exploration of what William calls the 'bedrock issues' of life. A terribly poignant but ultimately hopeful story that is relevant to anyone who is mindful of the value and transience of our lives.
