I got this book from Mouths of Mums as a monthly reward. I just finished it and I absolutely loved it. Daisy is young (just 27 years old) but she has “Lots of cancers” (as she says) and she knows she’s gonna die soon. She’s married and she decides that before dying she has to find a new wife for his sweet husband.
Such a poetic book. It makes you sad but it’s also so deep, real, with funny moments, with love and friendship, with open questions… I enjoyed it a lot and I was wondering what the other mums that read this book thought! :-)

  • I have not read this book but after reading this question I am seriously contemplating going out & purchasing it! It sounds like a fantastic read, an emotional roller coaster.
    I enjoy books like these because they are so easy to relate to.
    You’re able to put yourself in their shoes & it can affect the reader deeply.
    It also sounds like it would make a fantastic movie!

  • She did indeed! Enjoy it!!! :-)

  • I haven’t read it yet although I was lucky enough to win a copy from Mouths of Mums too. I am looking forward to reading it and it sounds like the author has addressed these sad topics with sensitivity.

  • No, I don’t think so.

  • Oh you make me want to go get this book and read it! Sounds like an awesome read. Is it based on a true story?

  • Oh! I think it’s a great book to discuss in a book club.
    If you all have the chance to read it, please do! :-)

  • I will recommend it to my book club

  • oh wow what a sensitive and sad topic!

  • I haven’t read this one but sounds like it should go on my to read list.

  • Really a lovely book. And Colleen Oakley’s first book. I’ve read that she’s working at her second novel. I will surely read it!

  • I was a lucky winner also! A real tear jerker with a lot of candid moments too!

  • It is. Very touching!

  • Havent read it but it sounds like such a lovely story.

  • It’s sad that so many people still suffer of cancer nowadays. But yes, it’s a reality that a lot of people have to face. And it’s “interesting” to see how people “handle” the news, included the people around. In such an awful situation, people can grow terribly apart, or reach a deep understanding of each other, of life and of love.
