'Put your lipstick on, begin the day. It will start without you anyway.' 'What will I wear to your funeral?' 'And how do I look after your orchid?' Kellie wanted to ask her mother so many questions while she still could. When you don't go a day without speaking to someone you love, how do you say goodbye forever? It didn't bear thinking about. When Pamela Curtain is diagnosed with cancer, her family plead with her to try everything that might give them all more time. She reluctantly agrees, but on one condition. Life goes on because it has to and so does the weekly family dinner with wine and loud sibling banter. With grace, guts and cups of tea the matriarch prepares herself and those she loves for the inevitable. Their conversations are honest, funny and at times confronting, where a shade of lipstick might be the only bright side. This is a toast to love, friendship and the ordinary. There is no happy ending but the Curtain family discovers that there can be 'good' in goodbye. And it somehow leaves them feeling just a little victorious. Now put on the kettle and open the wine.

Reviews

"It is deeply moving but not trite and answers questions I didn't even realise I had about dying. I cried, laughed and it made me assess my own relationships.""It made me want to spend some wine fuelled evenings with the Curtains""This is a love story. I feared that my own experience of loss would make reading about the intimacy of dying too painful but it is done in a way that I actually I found it comforting.""I love reading books you just can't put down and this was one of them!""It's like a two way experience. An extraordinary feeling and I felt healing for my own grief. That's quite an achievement.""I never re-read books but I know there will be a time when I will want to re-read this one.""It had me sucked in from the very beginning and I read it like a speeding train.""I am heading out to buy myself a new lipstick today."
