Elf and Yoli are sisters. While on the surface Elfrieda's life is enviable (she's a world-renowned pianist, glamorous, wealthy, and happily married) and Yolandi's a mess (she's divorced and broke, with two teenagers growing up too quickly), they are fiercely close — raised in a Mennonite household and sharing the hardship of Elf's desire to end her life. After Elf's latest attempt, Yoli must quickly determine how to keep her family from falling apart, how to keep her own heart from breaking, and what it means to love someone who wants to die.


  • Daniel Gosse

    Thought provoking novel with the perfect amount of seriousness and humour. The narrator's use of different voices only adds to the experience. Would definitely listen again.

    While I found the topic to be tedious, the characters and their real ness and complexity made up for it. The story and its people stuck with me.
