Hugely popular broadcaster and number-one-bestselling author Kate Garraway tells the story of how she is rebuilding her life as her husband Derek continues to fight the devastating effects of Covid.

'It's a book that is both heartbreaking and life-affirming, reminding us how love can fuel us in the darkest hour.'
Psychologies magazine
'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.’

Kate Garraway has had to learn how to adapt ever since her husband Derek began his fight against the devastating impact of Covid, a condition that has left him needing 24-hour care at home and long spells in hospital. Every day brings uncertainty and new challenges to test Kate and her family’s resolve.

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.
