About the Book

‘ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!!!! …up there for me with PS I Love You’ Reader review

Welcome to The Single Dad’s Handbook, your comprehensive guide to life without me when I pop my clogs!

It’s been two years since cancer stole Evan Harper’s wife, Claire, from their lives. Although Evan’s doing everything he can to be Super Dad for his five year old, Violet, he can’t seem to get anything right. So he turns to the one person who gives the best advice – Claire herself.

Before she died she wrote him a book of letters to see him through the ups and downs of raising their daughter and her words soon help him see that there is life after loss – and maybe even a second shot at love – when you find the courage to start living again…

It’s time to start living again, Evan. Your new forever starts right here. Love always, Claire
