This book was nothing like I’ve ever read before. Partly because of my recent experiences with my mother-in-law’s last days before she passed, making this a bittersweet read for me, and because of how well this story is told and so unabashedly honest about imminent death and what it’s like, the beauty and the ashes.
I absolutely loved these characters, of which Mrs. Kip wins the trophy for spunk and resilience. Aidyn Kelly’s character development in this story is so relatable and honest.
I love how these two worlds collide. I thoroughly enjoyed how this tender story unfolds. It’s raw and honest and dignified.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Aidyn Kelley is talented, ambitious, and ready for a more serious assignment than the fluff pieces she’s been getting as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star. In her eagerness, she pushes too hard, earning herself the menial task of writing an obituary for an unremarkable woman who’s just entered hospice care.
But there’s more to Clara Kip than meets the eye. The spirited septuagenarian may be dying, but she’s not quite ready to cash it in yet. Never one to shy away from an assignment herself, she can see that God brought the young reporter into her life for a reason. And if it’s a story Aidyn Kelley wants, that’s just what Mrs. Kip will give her–but she’s going to have to work for it.
Debut author Sara Brunsvold delights with this emotional multigenerational story that shows that the very best life is made up of thousands of little deaths to self. You’ll want to be just like Mrs. Kip when you grow up!
