"And suddenly what's clearer to me than the glowing orb on that PET scan is that this is now the number one thing on my to-do list. Jack needs a wife. And I am going to find him one." Daisy is 27 years old and has only months to live. And, each day, she's finding her way through her lists of what needs to be done. Her major worry is what her wonderful, charming husband, Jack, will do without her. It's this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles upon the obvious solution. She knows that he won't take care of himself so Daisy has to do it for him: she has to find him another wife. As she searches with singular determination for the right woman, she begins to realise that her plan to ensure Jack's happiness is much more complicated than she expected. Life-affirming, authentic, funny and heartbreakingly beautiful, Before I Go is all about love.
