“And if you are a mess, it doesn’t stop you deserving to be loved.”
Zoe is a thirty something hospice nurse. She wants to help people have a “good death,” something that was denied to one of her family members. After that death she fled Australia to set up shop in Bath, England. She is living but has no real spark in her day to day until the hospice brings in new management. Ben immediately criticizes her and her practice of helping her patients write notes to those they are leaving behind. But she quickly begins to suspect there is something more behind Ben’s brusque behavior.
Be forewarned, this one is definitely full of heavy topics. I totally agree with the comparison to Jojo Moyes Me Before You, it deals with death but has romance as well as themes of self discovery. It reminded me a lot of The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot, because death is a thing that happens to everyone not so much a thing to be feared and in that you can find a lot of solace as well as inspiration.
