1. What is your definition of an “afterlife”?
2. Do you think that the people we love “live on” after they die? In what form?
3. If you could “see” someone in the afterlife (the way Boyd “sees” Russell), who would it be?
4. What happens when people (like Boyd) in the heat of an argument (or in the grip of strong emotion) say things that are regrettable–even “unforgivable”?
5. Does marriage (and/or any other intimate relationship) demand fairly constant and ongoing acts of forgiveness?
6. Why are we afraid to talk about death?
7. Why do the physical “realities” of death (what embalmers like the character Griggs confront daily) frighten us?
8. Is death at the center of life?
From the Trade Paperback edition.

The style of writing was one I had never read before. I was intrigued by Ms. Dukes ability to capture the moment during the heroines trials. Her attitude was different and brought laughter as well as questions to my mind and heart. This is a novel that makes you wonder about your own lifes issues.Was this review helpful?
