Before I'm Gone (Paperback)
New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin tells a poignant story about living life to the fullest--and savoring the small moments along the way.
Palmer Sinclair has never needed anyone's help. A successful loan officer, she's all work and no play. But when splitting headaches and blurred vision begin to affect her job, she begrudgingly sees a doctor and receives a diagnosis that leaves her shaken to her core and with little time left. Facing an uncertain future, Palmer makes a bucket list, determined to do the things she'd only dreamed of before she goes.
Kent Wagner has dedicated his life to helping others. An army medic turned paramedic, he's a regular at Palmer's bank who makes his monthly car loan payments in person just to see her radiant smile. After responding to not one but two 911 calls involving Palmer, he learns about her bucket list. Touched by her circumstances--and needing a distraction from his own--Kent offers to take Palmer to the places on her list.
Neither is prepared for the emotional journey ahead...or how little time they have left together, but the friendship they find in that brief time might be the most lasting legacy of all.
