`He crashed on to the pillow next to me, heavy as a felled oak. I slapped His face and told Him to wake up. Our daughter, B, appeared in the doorway, woken up by the screaming - I must have been screaming but I don't remember - and she was crying and peering in. I told her the ultimate adult lie; that everything was all right.' Sudden death is rude. It just wanders in and takes your husband without any warning; it doesn't even have the decency to knock. At the impossibly young age of 37, as they were making love one night, Lucie Brownlee's beloved husband Mark dropped dead. As Lucie tried to make sense of her new life - the one she never thought she would be living - she turned to writing to express her grief. Life After You is the stunning, irreverent and heartbreakingly honest result.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Raw, riveting and beautifully written ... This is a brave, hugely emotional and above all wise book about something that most of us, in different ways, will have to go through at some point. Much recommended." * Andrew Marr *
"The story brims with charm, courage and wit...at times hysterical; heartbreaking at others, this is a wonderful book that has you cheering on its very likeable, funny and talented heroine as she moves from despair to a kind of hope" * Sunday Mirror *
"Lucie's memoir, which started life as a very personal blog, is a raw howl of disbelief at the speed with which a baby-making quickie could turn to life-shattering tragedy. Me After You is, despite everything, a story of survival and, cautiously, recovery. A wrenchingly funny read" * Daily Mail *
"...I loved it. The raw honesty that came through really touched me" * leading National Bereavement charity *
"A triumph" * Judy Finnigan *
