Eve finds her husband Quentin or Q dead by suicide on New Years Eve. She feels guilty since she did not see it coming and was deeply in love with him, her husband of 10 years and companion for 13 years. He came from a very prominent and rich Great Britain family, the Morrows. His mother Aspen, was very unhappy that Quentin married Eve, so made both of their lives pretty miserable. This is the story of Eve's emotional life after his death and her journey back to happiness, Someday, Maybe.

This was definitely a tough read/listen. Probably not for people going through a really rough patch of their own. This book is about the paralyzing grief of losing your loved one to suicide. At times, it's so difficult to listen to. However, the author does an amazing job showing how our main character's Nigerian family support her as well as her friends.

He was the great love of my life despite his penchant for going incommunicado,

I found him."

Not for everyone but an excellent book.
