In the spirit of the New York Times bestselling A
Man Called Ove, this is the heartwarming story of a man
who decides to end his life before he’s too old—but then
begins to reconsider when he faces complications from the
world around him.
In an effort to delay the frailty and isolation that comes
with old age, psychiatrist Millard Salter decides to kill
himself by the end of the day—but first he has to tie up
some loose ends. These include a tête-à-tête with his
youngest son, Lysander, who at forty-three has yet to hold
down a paying job; an unscheduled rendezvous with his first
wife, Carol, whom he hasn’t seen in twenty-seven years; and
a brief visit to the grave of his second wife, Isabelle.
Complicating this plan though is Delilah, the widow with
whom he has fallen in love in the past few months. As
Millard begins to wrap up his life, he confronts a lifetime
of challenges during a single day—and discovers that his
family has a big surprise for him as well.
