“Promise me you’ll learn to cuss, learn to love again. Live again. Promise me you won’t give up on each other.”
Simi Desai is thirty years old and her husband is dying of cancer. He has two last wishes in his final months: first, that she’ll have his baby so that a piece of him lives on, and second, that she’ll reconcile with her old flame, who just happens to be their mutual best friend. And so over the course of their last summer together, Simi’s husband plans a series of big and small adventures for this unlikely trio, designed to help them say goodbye to each other and prove to Simi that it’s okay to move on without him—and even find love again.
Beautiful and poignant, Falguni Kothari’s My Last Love Story will pull your heartstrings as only unforgettable love stories can.
Library Journal: “Kothari’s well-writen love story is a tearjerker with a twist. For fans of Cecelia Ahern’s PS, I Love You and JoJo Moyes’s Me Before You.”
Booklist: “Kothari’s willingness to push boundaries and delve into the nature of love, her ability to explore emotion without letting it slide into mawkishness, and her resolute focus on staying true to the individual make this a book well worth reading. It is also an unexpected read in many ways, leaving the reader questioning many common and easy assumptions.”
RT Book Reviews: "This culturally-rich, emotionally-wrenching novel takes everything typical about a love triangle and turns it upside down."
Publishers Weekly: "Kothari treats her subject matter with respect and honesty."
Fresh Fiction: "A last wish, family secrets and a long romance make this a delightful read."
