A thoughtful, captivating and ultimately uplifting novel from this uniquely talented author.
She has just two weeks. Two weeks to teach him how to fall in love - with his own life.
Adam Basil and Christine Rose are thrown together late one night, when Christine is crossing the Ha'penny Bridge in Dublin. Adam is there, poised, threatening to jump. Adam is desperate - but Christine makes a crazy deal with him. His 35th birthday is looming and she bets him that before then she can show him life is worth living.
Despite her determination, Christine knows what a dangerous promise she's made. Against the ticking of the clock, the two of them embark on wild escapades, grand romantic gestures and some unlikely late-night outings. Slowly, Christine thinks Adam is starting to fall back in love with his life. But is that all that's happening…?
A novel to make you laugh, cry and appreciate life, this is Cecelia Ahern at her thoughtful and surprising best.

100% pure pleasure

I was going to describe this book as a guilty pleasure but decided against it. After all why should anybody feel guilty for enjoying such a lovely heartwarming story? Cecelia Ahern is a skilled storyteller who has dealt with a difficult subject with compassion and an appropriate level of humour. The story has some interesting twists and turns and kept me riveted to the end. The heroine is a delight and when her full story was revealed I had a genuine lump in my throat. This is screaming to be made into a film but in the meantime I thoroughly recommend this audiobook and the beautiful narration by Aoife McMahon.
