Here is a truth that can't be escaped: for Mia 'Rabbit' Hayes, life is coming to an end . . .

Rabbit Hayes loves her life, ordinary as it is, and the extraordinary people in it.

She loves her spirited daughter, Juliet; her colourful, unruly family; the only man in her big heart, Johnny Faye.

But it turns out the world has other plans for Rabbit, and she's OK with that. Because she has plans for the world too, and only a handful of days left to make them happen.

Here is a truth that won't be forgotten: this is a story about laughing through life's surprises and finding the joy in every moment.

Praise for Anna McPartlin:

'A delightful roller-coaster ride of emotion' Sunday Independent

'Buy a packet (or box) of tissues and settle down with this wonderful story' Heat Magazine

“A tad too loveable”

Allow me a teensy bit of scepticism, please. Rabbit Hayes is a tad too loveable. It's hard to believe that anyone could be that perfect while dying. But you'll fall in love with the funny, heart-warming,... More
