Gorebridge mum’s book inspiration

A YOUNG widow, who has written a book to help her son come to terms with witnessing his father’s death, has told of her shock at being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Elke Barber (37), from Gorebridge, is hoping to publish Is Daddy Coming Back In A Minute? by using an online donation system to finance it.

Her husband, Martin, a fit and healthy policeman, died of a heart attack in 2009 at the age of 34.
