‘Wow… I laughed out loud, I cried, I stayed up well into the night reading just a little bit more. I just loved this book so much… I really really loved this book… An absolute joy to read.’ Goodreads Reviewer


Sometimes it takes losing something to see where you truly belong.


For the past twenty-nine years, Kay Bright’s days have had a familiar rhythm: she works in her husband’s stationery shop hoping to finally sell the legendary gold pen, cooks for her family, tries to remember to practise yoga, and every other month she writes to her best friend, Ursula. Kay could set her calendar by their letters: her heart lifts when the blue airmail envelope, addressed in Ursula’s slanting handwriting, falls gently onto the mat.


But now Ursula has stopped writing and everything is a little bit worse.


Ursula is the only one who knows Kay’s deepest secret, something that happened decades ago that could tear Kay’s life apart today. She has always been the person Kay relies on.


Worried, Kay gets out her shoebox of Ursula’s letters and as she reads, her unease starts to grow. And then at ten o’clock in the morning, Kay walks out of her yellow front door with just a rucksack, leaving her wedding ring on the table...


This emotional and heart-warming novel is for anyone who knows it’s never too late to look for happiness. Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, A Man Called Ove and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry will fall in love with this feel-good and moving story that shows you that the best friendships truly last forever.

There's nothing like being told that in three months you'll be dead to make you think about what you really want in life

"A novel about self-discovery, with plenty of surprises and a snappy, Bridget-Jones-gets-a-terminal-diagnosis vibe." -Booklist

Jennifer Cole has just been told that she has a terminal blood disorder and has just three months to live--ninety days to say goodbye to friends and family, and to put her affairs in order. Ninety days to come to terms with a diagnosis that is unfair, unexpected, and completely unpronounceable. Focusing on the positives (she won't have to go on in a world without Bowie or Maya Angelou; she won't get Alzheimer's or Parkinson's like her parents, or have teeth that flop out at the mere mention of the word apple), Jennifer realizes she only has one real regret: the relationships she's lost.

Rather than running off to complete a frantic bucket list, Jennifer chooses to stay put and write a letter to the three most significant people in her life, to say the things she wished she'd said before but never dared: her overbearing, selfish sister, her jelly-spined, cheating ex-husband, and her charming, unreliable ex-boyfriend--and finally tell them the truth.

At first, Jennifer feels cleansed by her catharsis. Liberated, even. Her ex-boyfriend rushes to her side and she even starts to build bridges with her sister Isabelle (that is, once Isabelle's confirmed that Jennifer's condition isn't genetic). But once you start telling the truth, it's hard to stop. And as Jennifer soon discovers, the truth isn't always as straightforward as it seems, and death has a way of surprising you....

SERVE A NEW MIXED MENU
OF WORSHIP




Worship Feast:
A Broad Menu of Extraordinary Worship Dramas



Serve an extraordinary worship experience to your youth. Engage them, and move them.

Make an impact.

Sometimes all you need to complete a meaningful worhip experience is a new skit that's easy to pull off...
...a drama that youth will love to perform, and one that will challenge actors and audience alike to ask serious questions about maintaining a life of faith in a not-so-faith-friendly world.

With Worship Feast Dramas you will get a diverse variety of skits - both long and short - in one resource! These skits have been field-tested with real youth in real situations.

Skits include --

Teach Me To Pray Survivor The Pizza Party McJesus To Go The Workers at the Mall The Sabbath Zone Sail Away ...and many more.

The current generation of young people doesn't know a time when information wasn't coming at them from every direction. They multi-task every second of their waking lives.

To meet their needs in worship, we offer a variety of postmodern worship--a multi-sensory, whole-person experience.

Postmodern young people are not content to be observers of worship. They want all-out participation in soul-shaping, heart-waking praise to their Creator.

Postmodern worship experiences offer moments of transformation by meeting God through all of the senses.

Worship Feast Dramas was especially designed for youth workers and pastors who want to reach young people in their worship services by taking the sacred traditions of the worshiping church...and blending them with current experiences.

Serve youth a worship menu that leaves them inspired...and full.
