Summary

How much is the smile from the person you love worth to you?

Brooke’s life has derailed. Her social life and career have evaporated, her daughter is desperately unhappy and being bullied at school, and, for a 43-year-old, she probably spends way too many weekends at her parent’s. But the reason for all this is no mystery. A year and a half ago, Brooke’s husband died.

But Brooke does have one secret. Her husband’s death, the worst thing that has ever happened to her, has made her unbelievably rich.

Despite her despair, Brooke suddenly realises she has the power to make her daughter’s life, and the world a little brighter.

Inspiring story of love, loss, heartache and ultimately happiness

What a sad but lovely story… interspersed with wry humour, naughty animals, cruel children, disingenuous professionals, the list goes on. Loved/hated the characters in all the right places. Very well written, relevant, poignant.

A lovely moving book

A lovely story, well written with a good amount of twists to keep the reader interested. Very much a modern day story including the love and loss of people close.
Well performed by the reader and a pleasure to listen too.
