Roseann and Christopher Brennan's lives were shattered when their beloved son, Jake, was mowed down by a car on a quiet estate in Kilkenny. The young mother describes the indescribable as her fatally injured 6-year-old lay in her arms pleading: "Mammy, I Don't Want to Die.'

In her searingly candid story, Roseann tells of her descent into chronic depression, being admitted to a psychiatric ward and the collapse of her marriage. She also speaks about self-harming and how her despair culminated in a suicide attempt that she was lucky to survive. Yet even during her darkest days, Roseann was determined to fight for justice and to turn her terrible loss into a legacy for her firstborn child.

This is a story of an indomitable mother, crazed with loss, but fighting for her life, her marriage, her children and for Jake's Legacy.
