Summary, Etc. The list he left had just one item on it. Or, at least, it did at first... Mabel Beaumont's husband Arthur loved lists. He'd leave them for her everywhere. 'Remember: eggs, butter, sugar'. 'I love you: today, tomorrow, always'. But now Arthur is gone. He died: softly, gently, not making a fuss. But he's still left her a list. This one has just one item on it though: 'Find D'. Mabel feels sure she knows what it means. She must track down her best friend Dot, who she hasn't seen since the fateful day she left more than sixty years ago. It seems impossible. She doesn't even know if Dot's still alive. Also, every person Mabel talks to seems to need help first, with missing husbands, daughters, parents. Mabel finds her list is just getting longer, and she's still no closer to finding Dot. What she doesn't know is that her list isn't just about finding her old friend. And that if she can admit the secrets of the past, maybe she could even find happiness again... A completely heartbreaking, beautiful, uplifting story, guaranteed to make you smile but also make you cry. Perfect for fans of A Man Called Ove, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and The Keeper of Stories. Readers are loving The Last List of Mabel Beaumont: ' Be still my beating heart. I've smiled and I've cried and everything in between ... I'd give it 10 stars if I could. ' Nicki's Book Blog 'Tender and beautiful... As hopeful as it is heart-breaking ... I loved it.' Amy Beashel ' This beautifully written story of friendship, love, loss and second chances captured my heart . I adored Mabel and her unlikely gang of colourful characters ...
