“Her time is running out. How can Daisy ensure that Jack will live happily ever after? On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant ‘Cancerversary’ with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of good health, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s unstoppable. Death is a frightening prospect – but not because she’s afraid for herself. She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife. With a singular determination, Daisy searches for Jack’s perfect match. But as the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy is forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness – or her own?”

There’s lots of books about dying out there now i have read a few last year . Before I Go was very emotional but i loved it and it will make you feels sad to know that Your reading a book about a character who I will literally have to say goodbye to very soon she was so lovely too . You will feel like the character are your family or friends You may need a tissue i did . I will say it made me smile in places to which was good and laugh.

There would be no happy ever after for Daisy and Jack, because Daisy is dying. I couldn’t see them spending their days together and so it meant I went in to the book already feel i know what the end would be but i just loved the book it just hooked me into the plan daisy came up with . Why would she do that ? What was she thinking of ?
Did you like her plan i was not sure about it

it’s a very beautiful book. It written so well you just flow with the story I got to said the book about love and two people sharing their points of view on what life throws at them It was beautiful and heart breaking all at the same time as we see Daisy and Jack come to terms with Daisy’s illness. It was very heart breaking at time Daisy and Jack seem so perfect together it’s hard to watch an illness like cancer tear them apart put this can happen a lot it was had to Daisy pushing Jack away, and Daisy going on her crazy plan to find Jack a new wife before she dies . I would of thought it would be so hard for Jack fall in love again so soon after losing Daisy but would it be ?

Daisy heart was so set on him being happy again when see gone it was so heart breaking some of what she says . I could feel both their love and the pain of the cancer it so hard to cope with my heart when out to them . I like we got both of their points of view . I enjoy both of them telling us about their lives ,their pain , they hopes and dreams .

The book just a lovely read. There was a lot sadness but it will make you smile too I loved it i just wanted to carry on reading to see what was going to happen I really enjoyed the novel. It’s a heart felt debut novel, it written so well you just got pull in the plot by the end of the first page to the last page i was hooked
A great read
