The Dead Wife's Handbook

(2014)
A novel by

 
A debut novel for fans of The Lovely Bones: "An intriguing tale of love after death and an insightful look at the bereavement process." - Kirkus Reviews

"Today is my death anniversary. A year ago today I was still alive."

Rachel, Max, and their daughter Ellie had the perfect life - until the night Rachel's heart stopped beating. She was thirty-six. Just as her family can't forget her, Rachel can't quite let go of them either. As Max and Ellie work through their grief, Rachel struggles, too - with bemusement, anger, sadness, and regret - to come to terms with her death.

Caught in a place between worlds, with a family just within reach but so far away, Rachel watches as her husband, her daughter, and her own mother move from denial to acceptance. As time passes, as they settle back into their routines, and begin to smile again, Rachel fears that she's fading from their lives...

This literary debut about remembrance - and becoming a memory - is "beautifully written and full of love" (Fern Britton).
