This debut novel is the story of twenty-seven year old Daisy Richmond who beat breast cancer three years ago, only to have it return with a vengeance as an aggressive stage IV diagnosis. As she tries to come to terms with the fact that she is dying - and probably soon - she realizes that one of her greatest worries is what will happen to her charming but disorganized husband, Jack, after she is gone. So she embarks on a campaign to find him his next wife.
Although this could have been a dreadful novel in the hands of another writer, it is actually a funny, poignant, genuine story - sad but not maudlin or overly sentimental. I recommend it. ~ Reviewed by Gail King
