Book 2 2024 The Last List of Mabel Beaumont by Laura Pearson

The price of living a long life, I think, is the sheer weight of the losses you have to suffer. You carry each loved one you lose, and they stack up, and it becomes unbearable. I tick them off in my mind. Brother, father, mother, husband, and my friend, my love.     

For our second book of the year I recommend The Last List of Mabel Beaumont by Laura Pearson. This is a book about lost opportunities and new opportunities. It focuses on an eclectic mix of women who are united by love and friendship, highlighting the themes of aging, loss, societal expectations and the acceptance of change. Here is the worksheet.
