About the Book

Death and life beckoned her to travel the world to heal her grief. Journeys with My Mother’s Ashes describes the trauma faced by a daughter who has to manoeuvre the pitfalls and traps after the death of her mother. She realises that the only way toward her healing is to leave the country of her birth and travel the world taking her mother’s ashes with her. Join her on her Grand Tour through life, death, drama, family, healing and lots of travel. There are many moments of both darkness and light, fun and reflection, exploration and realisations and most of all a sense of direction to a brighter future through trusting her intuition. The journey has very few plans yet provides exactly what the author needs through trusting both a loving Universe and herself. So, pack your bags and hop on board you never know what this journey could bring.

About the Author

Hélène Jermolajew is a published poet some of the poems in her collection titled Laughter, Tears and Coffee appear in this memoir. After the death of her mother and twelve months of travel she felt a strong pull to share her experience of grief and healing. This story documents her journey. Her favourite reading material is real stories, memoirs, biographies and self-help books amongst many others although an odd novel does find its way into her hands. She loves languages and reads for both the information in a book and the way language is used to tell a story. Her own style is conversational, she prefers to tell a casual story over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. She is the mother of two wonderful sons, grandmother to three beautiful grandchildren and has the two most incredible daughters-in-law anyone could ask for.
