Jo Cox's murder in June 2016 shocked the world. In the aftermath of her tragic death her husband Brendan Cox urged us to remember Jo's life and what she stood for and not the manner of her death. In this inspiring and impassioned portrait of Jo - as daughter, mother, wife, sister, MP and campaigner - we see how much she gave and much more she had to give. The values she embraced of togetherness, inclusion and compassion are needed now more than ever. A touching and very human portrait of an extraordinary woman, whose legacy has already inspired others. This summer over 100,000 events were part of The Great Get Together in honour of Jo.
'We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.'
All Brendan Cox's royalties will go to the Jo Cox Foundation.
'Jo would have no regrets about her life, she lived every day of it to the full.'

A searingly honest and extremely moving book about Jo Cox, which gives us all a chance to get to know the woman behind the headlines and the shocking way she died.

This feels like an important book, and it shows that a beautiful book can be written in clear, plain style - there is beauty enough in its subject. * The Guardian *
