Hannah Boland is known throughout Australia for her refreshingly clean and honest stand-up comedy. What
many don’t not know is that her journey to the stage stems from a history steeped in grief and loss of the most terrible kind.
Long before her foray onto the stage, she shared some of that journey in this book. Little did she know that the first edition of 47 Hours with a Prince would be the pre-cursor to several additional books and a career as a stand-up comic.
Hannah and her family currently reside in a small, semirural town in New South Wales. Hannah travels nationally as both a comedian and a speaker. She believes that laughter is one of the greatest gifts God has ever given us, and her heartfelt desire is to encourage people at all stages and stations in life through humour.

Don't be fooled by the title. Australian author Hannah Boland is a faithful servant of Jesus. But having lost a second full-term baby in 2013, Hannah was forced to face the deep, often unanswered questions of the Christian faith. To do this, she sought the counsel of three Godly mentors in a quest for more than just trite answers, the result is described as "an unequaled apologetic". (D Smith)
What do you say when your friend’s baby dies? What do you say when her second baby is tragically stillborn? Christian Authors Hannah Boland and Cecily Paterson wrote letters to each other for a year, beginning the month after Hannah’s second baby’s funeral. This correspondence is sometimes tragic, sometimes wry and often awkward, but is always honest and always looking for the way forward.
When Hannah and her husband received news that their precious baby suffered from Alobar Holoprosencephaly (HPE) (a rare brain abnormality), they began an awesome journey to understand God’s purpose for their son’s life. Join Hannah as she takes you through the joy, loss and deep grief of carrying a baby who will certainly die, his short life and the grief and healing to follow.
