Duration: 8 hours 55 minutes
For Kate Green, nothing was as important as the happiness and well-being of her two little boys, Reef and Finn, and her loving husband, St. John, known as "Singe." They had a wonderfully happy family life in Somerset, England. But then tragedy struck-Kate was diagnosed with breast cancer that couldn't be cured.
During her last few days, Kate created what she called Mum's List. With Singe's help she wrote down her thoughts, dreams, and wishes, trying to help the man she loved create the best life for their sons after she was gone.
Mum's List reveals Kate's passionate nature, her free spirit, and even her sense of humor. The list became Singe's rock as he turned to it again and again for strength and inspiration. Her instructions were simple-items like "look for four-leaf clovers" and "always say what you truly mean"-but the effect they had on Singe, Reef, and Finn was incredibly profound.
Singe's lesson to readers everywhere is that a list like Mum's List can change your life-and you don't need to lose someone to make a list and live your dreams. If you've ever wondered if you and your family could be living a happier, more meaningful life full of adventure and joy, then this book is for you.
