Helene De Kock

"I write because people and relationships fascinate me. Although romantic love stands central in my novels, it can never be separated from the fabric of life itself. Love is so interwoven in the bigger picture that it affects all other relationships like those between parents and children, brothers and sisters and also our relationship with God and the world."  –  Helene de Kock

Helene de Kock’s novels certainly succeed in touching people’s hearts in a very special way. These beautiful stories, some of which take place in the Cape wine lands and others in the equally picturesque Eastern Free State, are all stories that touch the heart mainly because of this writer’s sensitive portrayal of her characters. Her novels bear testimony to her thorough knowledge of people and her fine insight into the human condition. - Alita Vorster (Journalist) )

"When Death Becomes Life" This book is about the loss of a loved one and how to be consoled.
Death treats everyone differently. But to some extent God works in the same way with all who believe. If you ask for his help, youíll receive it. Unconditionally. You only need a spark of faith to reach out weakly to your Father. Then He strengthens that spark. Because God understands your sorrow.
This book is simply about how we, as a family, have experienced the death of our child and brother. Others may experience the death of a loved one differently. But we want to, and are certainly able to, bear testimony to Godís omnipotence, his deep empathy, His perfect love that has enfolded us daily. Also, we are able to testify in this manner because He made it possible for us to do so.
That is why we want to say with all our heart:
But God who comforts the downcast, comforted us [too]. 2 Corinthians 7:6
And the most important discovery on our journey through sorrow is that Godís peace is always there for those who are searching for Him:
ď... and I will give you rest.Ē Matthew 11:28
