Hospice does not seem like a setting for an enjoyable novel, but this irresistible audiobook transforms the place into a sanctuary of love, friendship, and memory. Ash's best friend, Edi, is dying, and her last weeks somehow become both a heartwarming tribute to a life well lived and a comedic commentary on the trials of coping with grief. Jane Oppenheimer is outstanding with tone and comic timing. Her dialogue is so realistic that the audiobook comes to life and becomes impossible to switch off. Sure, sometimes the moments and interactions seem too precious, and sometimes Oppenheimer injects too many tears into her voice, but the strengths outweigh the weaknesses in this title. Besides, we would expect tenderness and teardrops in this setting. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
