Colleen Oakley's debut deftly balances sorrow with laughs and compassion. - Us Weekly Her time is running out. How can Daisy ensure that Jack will live happily ever after? On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant 'Cancerversary' with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of good health, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it's unstoppable. Death is a frightening prospect - but not because she's afraid for herself. She's terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but charmingly helpless husband when she's no longer there to take care of him. It's this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife. With a singular determination, Daisy searches for Jack's perfect match. But as the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy is forced to decide what's more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband's happiness - or her own?

Before I Go is a big-hearted tale, with a fresh take on a woman grappling with the inevitable. The characters are approachable, full of wit and humor and - above all else - touching sincerity. * Suzanne Ridell, author of The Other Typist * Highly recommended for laugh-out-loud fans and the tearjerker set. * Library Journal * Oakley expertly tugs at the heartstrings with well-rounded characters and a liberal dose of gallows humor. * Publishers Weekly * In Before I Go, Oakley address the oft-asked question: if you only had six months to live, what would you do? In her deft hands, what could easily turn maudlin becomes a funny and insightful journey with Daisy, and the love of her life, Jack. If you loved Jojo Moyes' Me Before You, this book is for you. * Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden and Forgotten * Colleen Oakley takes on the big three - life, death,and love - and delivers a jewel. Before I Go absolutely glows with humor, wit, and compassion. I adore Oakley's fresh voice and could hardly bear for the book to end. -- Lynn Cullen, author of the bestselling Mrs. Poe Author Oakley has set herself a tricky balancing act here, blending a comic sensibility with the depth and poignancy her subject requires. She pulls it off. * People Magazine * Before I Go brings humour and authenticity to a heart-wrenching journey. * Sunday Age * Colleen Oakley's debut deftly balances sorrow with laughs and compassion. * Us Weekly * A funny, moving and tear-jerking love story. * The Sun *
