Summary

Sometimes the decisions we make can last a lifetime...and sometimes we cannot shake off the shackles of decisions made by others in the past.

Kate Flynn has spent her whole life running away. She reckons the best decision she's ever made was to leave Ireland the day after she finished school. Having seldom returned since, she would be perfectly happy if she never had to go back there. She is happy in London where she runs a successful photography gallery with her best friend Nat, though their relationship is going through a rocky patch since Nat began an affair with a married man. 

When Kate becomes pregnant and her partner, Ben, persuades her to make the trip home, she is forced to confront everything she left behind, including the memories of Eva, the mother she feels betrayed her. Kate finds it impossible to forgive Eva, who chose to refuse cancer treatment while pregnant and then died, leaving a young family motherless. 

Do some wounds go too deep to ever heal? Must Eva's choice forever deny Kate a real happiness

The Last Goodbye is a powerful story of love and loss, forgiveness and new beginnings - a heart-wrenching and emotional pause-resister for mothers and daughters everywhere.
