A moving, funny novel about a Type-A advice columnist dying of cancer and determined to go out in the best way possible, whether that means asking her children to color her casket or finding her husband a new wife. As an author, she's even writing a book about the experience: The Household Guide to Dying. This is a listen filled with memorable moments, vivid imagery, and important messages about the end of life, which performer Heather Bolton narrates with delicacy and sensitivity.
When Delia Bennet - author and domestic advice columnist - is diagnosed with cancer, she knows it's time to get her house in order. Fresh, witty, deeply moving - and a celebration of love, family and that place we call home - this unforgettable story will surprise and delight the reader until the very last page.
