My dearest Ella, I wish we would have had more time together, but we both know that we don't always get what we want...
Ella is consumed by grief when her Grandma Dorothy dies. Left with Grandma's ashes in an alabaster urn, Ella dreams of rubbing it like a magic lamp and Grandma suddenly appearing. But it's only a dream. To protect herself from experiencing this kind of heartache ever again, Ella pulls away from Trey, the love of her life. Better to leave him than to lose him, she thinks. Slowly Ella learns to live again as she reads the letters Grandma left behind one for every day of the coming year.
My dearest Ella, I can't believe that I'm writing the last note you will ever receive from me. By the time you read this, a whole year will have passed since my death. I hope my notes have helped you find your way...
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A journalist by day and an author by night, Buffy Andrews loves telling stories. Some of her fiction ideas pop into her head at the most inopportune times, such as during a sermon or in the shower or when she’s supposed to be listening in a meeting. She’s written all over church bulletins, jumped out of the shower more than once to write down an idea and turned meeting handouts into story boards.
When she’s not writing, she’s leading an award-winning team of journalists at the York Daily Record/Sunday News in York, PA., where she’s Assistant Managing Editor of Features and Niche Publications and the newspaper’s social media coordinator.
In addition to her writing blog, Buffy’s Write Zone, she maintains a social media blog, Buffy's World. She is also a newspaper and magazine columnist and writes middle-grade, young adult and women's fiction.
She lives in southcentral Pennsylvania with her husband, Tom; two sons, Zach and Micah; and wheaten cairn terrier Kakita.
