Sometimes you have to risk everything to find your something...

Andrew works with death for a living. Searching for people's next of kin and attending the funerals if they don't have anyone, he's desperate to avoid the same fate for himself. Which is fine, because he has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that's what he's told people.

The truth is, his life isn't exactly as people think and the little white lie he once told is about to catch up with him.

Because in all Andrew's efforts to fit in, he's forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it's about time for him to start.

'A charming, humorous and life-affirming tale about human kindness that strikes a chord in a world where loneliness is a growing problem' BBC News Online, Top Fiction of 2019
