Goodnight Dear: The Unsentimental Diary Of A Bereaved Husband
Maïté Humphries-Farge died on January 14th 2011, quite suddenly and without warning.
She was not targeted by a serial killer or the victim of some vampire boyfriend’s nemesis because this was not fiction. This was merely the kind of day-to-day family tragedy that barely makes the local news.
This is the story of the first year after Maïté’s death, as told in diary entries made by her husband, recounted in the hope that anyone involved in a committed relationship who reads it might think to find out where the insurance policy is, decide to take out that funeral plan or simply ask themselves what they would do if it happened to them.
Because it happens to someone every day.
(Any author royalties made from the sale of this ebook will be donated to bereavement counselling charities)
