Be sure to have a pack of tissues ready as you dive into Caroline Finnerty’s latest tear-jerking novel The Last Days of Us, which publishes today in eBook with Boldwood Books


In her latest heart-breaking story of family, loss and hope, Caroline introduces us to mother of two, Sarah, who struggles to keep her family together when they are unexpectedly struck with tragedy.


All Sarah McIntyre has ever wanted was a loving, happy family.  So when her husband JP announces on Christmas Day that he is leaving her and their two children, 9 year old Harry and 4 year old Robyn, Sarah is left reeling. 

But things are set to get worse when Robyn is diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. 

Can JP and Sarah unite to fight their biggest battle yet? or will they be on opposing sides once again?

With the couple at loggerheads and with Robyn’s condition deteriorating day-by-day, precious time is running out and JP is getting desperate…

The Last Days of Us is a tender story of hope and forgiveness that asks the question how far would you go to save your child?


Caroline first had the idea for her debut book In a Moment after she became a mother for the first time; the book was praised in The Irish Examiner as “an absorbing and emotional read.” She has since gone on to write The Last Goodbye, Into The Night Sky and My Sister’s Child, which have likewise been praised for their equally emotional and moving storylines. Receiving glowing reviews from both her contemporaries and early reviewers, we can’t wait for Caroline’s fans (both new and old) to get their hands on her latest novel.
