The list he left had just one item on it. Or, at least, it did at first. Mabel Beaumont's husband Arthur loved lists. He'd leave them for her everywhere. `Remember: eggs, butter, sugar'. `I love you: today, tomorrow, always'. But now Arthur is gone. He died: softly, gently, not making a fuss. But he's still left her a list. This one has just one item on it though: `Find D'. Mabel feels sure she knows what it means. She must track down her best friend Dot, who she hasn't seen since the fateful day she left more than sixty years ago. It seems impossible. She doesn't even know if Dot's still alive. Also, every person Mabel talks to seems to need help first, with missing husbands, daughters, parents. Mabel finds her list is just getting longer, and she's still no closer to finding Dot. What she doesn't know is that her list isn't just about finding her old friend. And that if she can admit the secrets of the past, maybe she could even find happiness again. A completely heartbreaking, beautiful, uplifting story, guaranteed to make you smile but also make you cry. Perfect for fans of My Name is Ove, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and The Keeper of Stories. Readers are absolutely loving The Last List of Mabel Beaumont: `I've just finished The Last List of Mabel Beaumont. Be still my beating heart. I've smiled and I've cried and everything in between. Most importantly I've learned. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.' Nicki's Book Blog `This beautifully written story of friendship, love, loss and second chances captured my heart. It's a tender and uplifting read and I adored Mabel and her unlikely gang of colourful characters. If you enjoy a book that leaves you feeling warm, hopeful, and satisfied, The Last List of Mabel Beaumont is definitely for you.' Lisa Timoney, author `I loved it! Mabel Beaumont is an absolute treasure. Laura Pearson cleverly, gently, peels back the layers of Mabel's and her friends' lives in a way that hurts, then soothes, your heart. An uplifting, life-affirming joy of a novel!' Emma Robinson, author `Gorgeous. Tender and beautiful. As hopeful as it is heart-breaking. I loved it.' Amy Beashel, author `I absolutely loved this book. I adore an older protagonist who's portrayed as a real person, with opinions and regrets, and who is feisty and not afraid to speak her mind. The story is like a warm hug - but it had spark and wit and humour too. I loved it, and was bereft when I finishedit (far too) late last night!. Gorgeous!' Clare Swatman, author `Wow. Seriously. Just beautiful. So many wonderful elements. Such a unique angle. So many memorable characters. Beautiful and utterly affecting.' Louise Beech, author `Such a treat!. Just beautiful. If you're looking for a charming, warm and moving read, this is the book you need. A beautifully written story about love and longing, and a poignant reminder that it's never too late to follow your heart.' Holly Miller, author `I adored it. Laura has written a heartbreakingly beautiful story about love in all its different forms. (And she made me cry again, of course). Bravo.' Nikki Smith, author `Well, I finished this in the same 24 hours as I started it. Oh. what a beautiful story and an amazing cast of characters. Poignant and inspiring!' Jennie Godfrey, author `Such a poignant story. Brought a lump to my throat in many places. Will really appeal to fans of Joanna Cannon.' Karen Angelico, author `What a beautiful book about truth, love, relationships and how it's never too late to follow your heart. Moving, funny and emotionally clever. Highly recommend!' Alison Stockham, author `I loved this poignant, heart-warming, life-affirming novel about friendship in all its many forms. A joy to read. Bravo!' Carole Hailey, author `Wonderful. Uplifting. The author wrote the main character so well that I knew her. A brilliant book, full of the people who surround us, but you don't yet know. Clever and unforgettable. Dive in, and prepare to be inspired.' Ross Greenwood, author
