Financier and environmentalist Ben Goldsmith has written a book about the death of his daughter, Iris.

The 15-year-old died in 2019 after a quad bike accident on the family farm in Somerset. 

A funeral was held and a memorial to Iris remains in place in woodland near in the family’s home town of Barnes. 

God is an Octopus is described as a powerful and inspiring story of finding comfort and strength in nature after suffering loss and despair.
