Pack Up the Moon
A heart-wrenching and uplifting story from the bestselling author
Joshua Park never expected to be a widower at the age of thirty. Given his solitary job, small circle of friends and family, and the social awkwardness he’s always suffered from, he has no idea how to negotiate this new, unwanted phase of life.
But Lauren, his wife, had a plan to keep him moving forward. A plan hidden in the letters she leaves him, giving him a task for every month in the year after her death.
It’s a journey that will take Joshua from his first outing as a widower to buy groceries… to an attempted dinner party that becomes a comic disaster… to finding a new best friend while weeping in the dressing room of a clothing store.
As his grief makes room for new friendships and experiences, Joshua learns Lauren’s most valuable lesson: the path to happiness doesn’t follow a straight line.
Funny, sometimes heart-wrenching, and always uplifting, this novel from bestselling author Kristan Higgins illuminates how life’s greatest joys are often hiding in plain sight.
