An unforgettable, heart-warming story of love and letting go

Before We Say Goodbye

When you can't heal your own heart, can you fill someone else's?

Josie Hudson’s whole life has been about one thing and one thing only: keeping her son Scott alive.

And when Scott, now nineteen, finds out that his heart is once again failing – with no hope of a transplant – Josie’s world comes crashing down.

Determined to give meaning to his final months, Scott decides to find a match for his mum: someone to be there for her when he will no longer be.

But can Scott succeed in finding love for his mum before it’s too late? Or will his place in her heart be too large to fill . . .
