Cover
Author: Gerrard, Nicci
Publication year: 2019
Language: English
Classification: 616.831
ISBN: 9780241347454
Notes:

Full of people's stories, both sad and optimistic, it is a journey into the dusk and then the darkness - and then out on to the other side, where, once someone is dead, a life can be seen whole again.
