The Collected Regrets of Clover

By Mikki Brammer
A big-hearted and life-affirming novel that turns the normally taboo subject of death into a reason to celebrate life!

The Collected Regrets of Clover is the burst of hopefulness we need right now. A sparkling debut novel from Australian Mikki Brammer, which reminds us all to live our best life with fewer regrets.

‘A beautiful, uplifting novel about unexpected friendship, a decades-old love story, and finding the courage to live your best life.’ Lucy Diamond, author of An Almost Perfect Holiday

‘Warm, profound, and expertly told . . . This is one of those special books that will leave a handprint on your heart.’ Emma Brodie, author of Songs in Ursa Major

In her work as a ‘death doula’, Clover Brooks ushers people peacefully through their last days, collecting their final words into three notebooks: ADVICE, CONFESSIONS and REGRETS.

But Clover spends so much time with the dying that she’s forgotten how to live . . .

Can her clients’ hard-won wisdom – and the inspiring love story of a spirited old woman named Claudia – show Clover the way to a happy ending?

After all, what’s the point of giving someone a beautiful death if you can’t give yourself a beautiful life?

‘What a beautiful story . . . This book will be one that I remember for a long time, and it’s a story that we can all learn something from.’ Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things

‘I couldn’t put this book down . . . a tender, charming delight, perfect for anyone who loves The Authenticity Project or Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.’ K J Dell’Antonia, author of The Chicken Sisters
