"At once heartbreaking, delightful, and completely unexpected. A must-read!"—Sonali Dev, award-winning author of The Bollywood Bride
“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.

2.75 Stars This book was depressing and uncomfortable. That's not always a bad thing, but I think it was a little too much for me here. This was well written and I'd easily pick up another book by Kothari. But, the story line and the little twists and nuances just made me so..well, uncomfortable. Not in a cringe-worthy way, more like a "this shouldn't be happening" type way. There's a man with terminal cancer and his wife who he's blackmailing to have a baby via IVF.

Constant hints at it almost being a ménage without it actually ever being one. And an elephant in the room in regards to Simi's past that only she seems privy to. In a way it almost slides into creepy on the uncomfortable scale. But then the writing is so good and I stayed just curious enough to want to keep reading to find out what would happen.
