She said: "Charlotte used to sit and read in there on a Saturday when we went shopping in Barnstaple.

"It is sad but beautiful that I will be signing the book that is dedicated to her in the same spot."

Last month, speaking about her new book, Jennifer said: "This book is so personal; it's very vivid and visceral, but I have made everything public. That's the difference between this book and others.

"Grief is something that nobody wants; it's an enemy, but if you understand grief and know it really well, then somehow, you can have some sort of power with it."

Jennifer will be signing copies of A Testament of Grief from noon-2pm at Barnstaple Waterstones on Saturday, September 2.
