Synopsis: The simple fact of the matter is that Iris loves life. Maybe she’s forgotten that. Sometimes that happens, doesn’t it? To the best of us? All I have to do is remind her of that one simple fact.
Tuesday morning starts like any other—until Terry discovers her best friend, Iris, has gone missing. Finding her takes Terry, Iris and Terry’s confused father, Eugene, on an extraordinary journey, one that will change all of their lives. And along the way, what should be the worst six days of Terry’s life turn into the best.
Because friendship teaches us all to be brave—and that sometimes the rules are made to be broken. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: A very sweet story that deals with life just as much as it does death. Terry goes on a journey that is life changing. She also goes on a journey with people she loves. Her father has dementia. Her best friend has gone missing. There's a lot on Terry's plate and this journey to find her friend really makes her think what life is really about.
I really liked the writing of this story. It was sweet. It made me think. It was also a really sweet story of friendship. It wasn't always the happiest of stories, it had a lot of challenges woven within its pages. It deals with end of life decisions, dementia, and MS.
Terry is also an interesting character because for years, she's lived her life for other people. She raised her children, and now she does everything she can to make her husband's life comfortable. This journey Terry goes on is also a journey for her.
I thought this was a sweet story. I definitely think it's one to check out.

Ciara Geraghty is an Irish bestselling novelist. She lives in Dublin with one husband, two 'technically' grown up children and one actual kid, who is probably the most mature of the lot of them. When she is not writing in her garret, Ciara loves reading, swimming in the sea and playing her violin. The neighbours adore her, obviously....
