Forty years old and suddenly motherless, Blanca is left shocked and rudderless by the death of the most important person in her life. To deal with her dizzying grief and confusion, Blanca turns to her dearest friends, her closest family, a change of scenery, and sex. Leaving Barcelona behind, she returns to her mother's former home in Cadaques on the coast, accompanied by her two sons, two ex-husbands, and two best friends, with plans to meet her married lover. Haunted by both the past and the present, Blanca spends the summer in this impossibly beautiful place alongside those she loves most. In loss she learns to find resilience and hope, and what it means to live, truly and happily, on her own terms.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Should be the hit of the summer. Couldn't stop. Fun, raw, sexy, true." * Matt Haig *
"A beautiful novel about life, death, love and sex. This Too Shall Pass is a funny, sexy, fiercely clever novel that takes us into the heart of what it means to love and how we must try to find a way to live even when we are brought low by grief." -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * The Pool *
"Like a day at the beach - a European beach, with cigarettes and espresso - this novel lingers in the mind well after it is over, reminding us of the intimacy between pleasure and loss" * New York Times Book Review *
"Unforgettable" * Marie Claire *
"Funny, philosphical and a delight to read." * Stylist *
