In this gripping psychological thriller, a young mother is diagnosed with a terminal illness and decides to use her remaining time on earth to make amends to the people she's wronged. Working from her home, she contacts each of her former acquaintances, one by one, to offer her apology and attempt to atone for her sins. With each conversation, the young mother becomes more and more ill, until the day she dies and her apologies are finally accepted.

This beautifully written novel is both heartwarming and chilling, as the young mother's illness gradually takes away her ability to make decisions for herself. Readers will be captivated by her story and her interactions with her former friends, and will be left pondering the consequences of our own actions.; 8vo; 391 pages; FSA.
