On July 29, 2013, Kathleen Chada's husband, Sanjeev brutally murdered their two sons, Eoghan (10) and Ruairi (5). The boys had been taken from their family home in Carlow. Kathleen waited, and searched, for almost 24 hours before her husband phoned her and told her, 'The boys are dead'.
Now Kathleen has written the story of Eoghan and Ruairi. Everything is a beautiful though painful celebration of their young lives, but it is also a powerful and rewarding story of how a mother has attempted to build her life back into one piece after the devastation of their deaths.
'I only had them back in our home for one night... I wanted them back in their bed they had shared that summer. I wanted to sleep with them alone in their room. I wanted to sleep between them, but... they were... so cold. Eoghan and Ruairi were so cold... he even stole from me the opportunity to hold their warm bodies one last time. I kissed them again, as they lay there in their Kilkenny jerseys, the jerseys they adored and would be buried in that morning. I placed a mattress on the floor... and lay there through the night.'
In Everything, Kathleen Chada remembers the man she knew for almost 20 years. The man who was the love of her life, and whom she shared such a happy life within the Middle East and London. Sanjeev Chada... her Sanj.
A man she now understands to be 'pure evil'.
A man who had also planned to murder her several years before. And a man she believes must never be allowed free from Arbour Hill Prison in Dublin.
Everything can be taken away from you once. This is a book which explains how one woman has regained almost... Everything.
