Would you risk everything if you had the chance to say goodbye?


Hot Brands Cool Places Review
Emma Cooper’s books are always beautifully written and emotionally charged, and If I Could Say Goodbye is another powerful example.

It’s impossible not to be moved by this beautiful book about loss and love, as Emma takes you through every emotion experienced by all the characters, especially Jen, Ed, and their children.

Achingly poignant, heartbreaking and yet also with moments of real humour, you will be holding your breath until the very end.

Highly Recommended!
