Synopsis

'This book! Swedish, confessional, shockingly honest about desire, love, loss. I've read it twice now and can't stop thinking about Carolina. Utterly compulsive' MARIAN KEYES



`Brutally candid. The most compelling book I've read in years' THE TIMES



`Quite simply one of the best bereavement memoirs I've read. It's impossible not to draw comparisons with Karl Ove Knausgaard, but there is a unique voice here, a style of disclosure all her own, incidentally beautifully translated. I absolutely loved it' EVENING STANDARD



`Every spare, controlled sentence has the ring of truth. Gripping' DAILY MAIL



THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER



The last night, I fall asleep believing we have thousands of days ahead of us. We don't. This night is our last night.



One evening, Carolina says good night to her partner, Aksel. Things have been tough for both of them recently, especially with an eight-month-old son to raise. So when Aksel dies unexpectedly in the night, Carolina's world is turned upside down.



Based on the author's own experiences, Let's Hope for the Best details the small moments of life before and after tragedy. It's a story about motherhood, family and the difficulties of loving someone who is distant, and then who is gone. Brave and unsparing, packed with emotion and humanity, it is about how the life we envisage for ourselves can be altered in an instant.



What if one moment changed everything you've ever known?
