The Collected Regrets of Clover

An uplifting story about living a full, beautiful life


Brought to you by Penguin.

Put your heart out there.

Let it get broken.
Take chances.
Make mistakes . . .
Let yourself live.


Clover Brooks has always felt a stronger connection with those at the end of their life than in the middle of it. She dedicates herself to ushering people peacefully though their final days, working as a death doula in New York City. Her client's last words are collected in three treasured notebooks, neatly labelled: ADVICE, CONFESSIONS and REGRETS.

Then she meets Claudia: a woman who has had the kind of life that Clover hasn't dared imagine for herself. But even Claudia has one regret. Now, with only an old love letter, a road map and a leap of faith, Clover begins her first adventure...

A big-hearted story about figuring out what we really want from life - and finding the courage to go after it.


'A tender, charming delight, perfect for anyone who loved The Authenticity Project or Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine' KJ Dell'Antonia, The Chicken Sisters

'This book will be one that I remember for a long time' Ruth Hogan, The Keeper of Lost Things
