Dinner on the Doorstep (2017)

A stay in hospital is never easy, especially if you are the one who usually looks after everyone. Who will cook and care for the family? Who will keep the adults company? The presence of a supportive community is uplifting and the smallest gesture of kindness can make a positive difference in another’s life. Dinner on the Doorstep is a celebration of community support through the eyes of a young child. This joyful story takes the reader through the week in the family’s life when mum is in hospital. Friends and neighbours naturally want to help. They may not be able to make them better but they can help to alleviate the stress by doing the small things to show they care. The reader is encouraged to consider that the message of the story reaches far beyond the final pages. In this way there is a second layer of meaning allowing those going through long term care of a loved one to construct their own ending and to be able to platform relevant conversations with young children about what long term illness means.
