Goodbye for Now by Laurie Frankel

Imagine a world in which you never have to say goodbye. A world in which you can talk to your loved ones after they've gone - About the trivial things you used to share About the things you wish you'd said while you still had the chance About how hard it is to adjust to life without them. When Sam Elling invents a computer programme that enables his girlfriend Meredith to do just this, nothing can prepare them for the success and the complications that follow. For every person who wants to say goodbye, there is someone else who can't let go. And when tragedy strikes, they have to find out whether goodbye has to be for ever. Or whether love can take on a life of its own...


'Will make you laugh, think and cry'
Jill Mansell

'A thought-provoking 2012 love story well-told'

'A brilliantly unsettling novel... An unforgettable, heartbreaking novel... impossible to put down'
Image (Ireland)

'Frankel's novel is a bittersweet account of loss and the very modern phenomenon that is online immortality. If you're a fan of One Day, this one's going to have you hooked'

'A kooky story that fans of One Day will love'
