The husband who refused to die

£2.99

Product description

Her husband's died.Though he doesn't see it that way.So what next for Carrie? Carrie's no ordinary widow. Husband Dan has died unexpectedly and left behind an extraordinary wish - to be frozen. He believes his life's simply been suspended', that he can come back . one day . when science has moved on. He'd hoped his wife would want to do the same. But she doesn't. Two years on and Carrie, mum to increasingly truculent teenage daughter Eleanor, tentatively reconnects with an old boyfriend, whose dramatic exit from her life has always been a painful mystery. But their romance is hampered by Carrie's never-ending personal problems, not least her interfering sister-in-law Sunny, a reflexologist with a soft voice, loud clothes and a bag full of natural remedies. Sunny's intent on keeping her brother's memory alive and ensuring Carrie honours his request. After Dan's story is resurrected in the news headlines, some distressing secrets from the past are revealed, and Carrie is taunted by someone with a serious grudge. But are the secrets true? Will she discover who's behind the malicious acts - and why? Told with warmth and wit, The Husband Who Refused to Die is a pacy novel with an original premise that casts an unusual light on a story about love, loss, family and friendship. The perfect book for readers who like a contemporary romance but are open to something different.'
