Before We Say Goodbye

Madeleine Reiss

'I found it deeply moving and couldn't stop reading' Susan Lewis

'Gorgeous and Emotional' Fern Britton

A devastatingly beautiful novel about love, family and learning to let go, for fans of Jojo Moyes.

Scott Hudson owes everything to his mother, Josie. Since the day he was diagnosed with heart failure, her whole life has been about him. She's been at every appointment, held him through every dark moment and never once given up hope.

Now, having been given a new heart, Scott is ready to live his life, but first he's determined to give his mother a second chance at love. To help her find someone who will be her champion. Posting a video on YouTube, he sets out to find the perfect man.

Blissfully unaware of 'Project Boyfriend', Josie is startled when Scott sets her up on a series of blind dates. Unable to deny her son anything, she awkwardly finds herself back in the dating game . . . and enjoying it more than she ever imagined.

But just as life seems to be coming together for both Scott and Josie, some distressing news threatens everything.
