London writer releases grief guidebook after losing both parents in her twenties.

Press Release: June 23, 2020

LONDON (June 2020) – Award-winning blogger and writer Flora Baker releases her first book, THE ADULT ORPHAN CLUB, on 22nd June 2020.

Early Goodreads reviews are unanimously positive:

“This is the best book on grief I have read.”

“Beautifully written. Heartfelt, practical, sad and joyous. This is the book I wish I could have read 13 and 8 years ago when I joined the club.”

“Although Flora’s experience in losing her parents differs from mine, I saw so much of my own grief experience reflected in these pages. I felt seen and held while reading it. The mix of memoir and practical guide is unlike any book on grief that I have read. While it is written with the adult orphan in mind, I believe this book will help anyone feel less alone on their own unique grief journey.”

“It’s a vitally necessary book…clearly-written and well-paced: a real guide to the worst of grief, and then the gentle lifting of that load with time.”


After both her parents died before she turned 30 years old, travel and grief writer Flora Baker wrote a part-memoir, part-guide to the grieving process. THE ADULT ORPHAN CLUB explores the chaotic ways grief affects us and how we learn to navigate it. Written with the newly bereaved in mind and packed with practical tips and advice, this book guides the reader through every step of their grief journey and opens up the death conversation in an honest, heartfelt and accessible way. It’s an essential companion for anyone facing grief or supporting loved ones through their own losses.

THE ADULT ORPHAN CLUB is available now on Amazon, priced at £2.99 (ebook) and £8.99 (paperback).
