Summary
Let's Hope for the Best is a beautifully written, intimate and emotionally brave debut novel about a young mother facing the sudden death of her partner. The last time I say goodnight to you I don't know it's the last time. One evening, thirty-six-year-old Carolina says goodnight to her partner, Aksel. There'll be time tomorrow... time to work on their relationship, to calm their nine-month-old son, to embark on a new chapter as a family. But then Aksel dies unexpectedly in the night, and Carolina's world is turned upside down. Told in two narratives that work towards the moment of Aksel's death, Let's Hope for the Best recounts the intensity of falling in love. Carolina unpacks the small details of life before tragedy, determined to find some explanation for the bad hand she's been dealt. When an opportunity for new romance presents itself, she finds herself assuming the reticent role Aksel once held. She's been given the gift of love again. But will she take it?
Summary
