Maggie never wanted to go into the family business, but when her parents die suddenly and her husband has just abandoned her and their two small children, what choice does she have? With the support of her best friend Elka and her mentor Betty, she had to accept becoming a funeral director. Now Kate and Nick are grown and Maggie faces the prospect of a future without them.
It's the middle of winter and Queenstown is full of skiers. Betty has just died and Elka needs surgery. Kate, back from London where she was an up and coming chef, won't get out of bed. Nick feels guilty delivering fast food to an ex-champion skier, Lizzie, who is bitter about the injury which robbed her of glory. There is a movie star on location nearby who won't listen to advice, and Maggie can't seem to put a foot right with the new doctor in town.
People are dying and life goes on.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"Observe, Remember, Compare. It can be applied to almost anything." This is an amazing book of family, love, hope, grief and resilience. The Main character Maggie Porter is a funeral director. She has two children who are finding their ways as they approach adulthood, and Maggie has friends who help her find her dreams. I loved the characters, the descriptions and the real life dilemma's in each chapter. Tissues are needed at times, but laughing is included and you won't want to miss this novel!
