Inhaltsangabe: One Last Goodbye. One Last Adventure.

Pearly Laurel is devastated by the death of her beloved husband of thirty-five years. The two had always said they couldn?t live without one another, and Pearly has no desire to even try.

Then, in the midst of her grief, Pearly finds a tattered list in Joey?s pocket, entitled, ?While I Live, I Want to?.? His ultimate to-do list sends her off on a mission to accomplish Joey?s last unfulfilled goals?along with a few of her own?before arranging her own death. But the people she meets along the way have something else in mind. Can their unexpected gifts, secrets long hidden in Joey?s journal, and memories from the rich life they shared convince Pearly that, despite her pain and grief, life is still worth living?

Klappentext: ?With a style and voice that?s uniquely her own, Lisa Samson has created an unforgettable heroine in Pearly. I couldn?t put the book down until I reached the end, then I was sorry it was over. This book is the living end. Don?t miss it!?
?Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling author of Firstborn and Beyond the Shadows

?Lisa?s wit, humor, and insight never fail to amaze me. This book is no exception. Pearly is one of those quirky, lovable characters that touches your heart and changes the way you look at ?everyday? things like life and death and love.?
?Melody Carlson, author of Finding Alice and Looking for Cassandra Jane

?If you think fiction isn?t true, meet Pearly. In The Living End, Lisa Samson gifts us with raucous but oh-so-real responses to the questions that plague us all if we?re awake. Where is meaning? What is love? Who gets hurt most when we challenge authority? What is a life well-lived? Lisa?s characters stick to your ribs with names like Peta and Cheeta and Pearly Everlasting, who is everlasting and who, like Scarlett O?Hara, will live forever in my mind. Running beside Pearly as she races to finish her to-do list will leave you breathless, then inspire you with everlasting hope. Samson spins this story out with intensity and joy, compelling us to discover if Pearly will end her life before she truly finds it.?
?Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of A Name of Her Own

?This story is a pilgrimage from grief to faith. Samson respects those deep processes of the soul, and her characters step into life, one day at a time.?
?Vinita Hampton Wright, author of The Winter Seeking
