Elsie Porter is an average 20-something, and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year's Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn't expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Within weeks the two are head over heels in love. By May they've eloped. Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. At the hospital she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met - and who doesn't even know Elsie exists.
"Touching and powerful...Reid masterfully grabs hold of the heartstrings and doesn't let go. A stunning first novel." (Publishers Weekly)
"A moving novel about life and death." (Kirkus Reviews)

Wish someone had warned of the HORRIBLE narrator!
Beautifully written, emotionally raw, awesome book
This is one of the top stories I've heard. I usually avoid this type of story but like Me Before You by JoJo Moyes, I couldn't put it down.
I would have to say when Elsie ran down the street and Fruity Pebbles were crunching under her feet.
When Elsie and Ben got married. So beautiful.
I cried, and cried and cried some more.
It's a must read.
