Filled with all the larger-than-life characters and enchanting storytelling that made readers fall for The Reader,  Jean Paul Didierlaurent’s follow up novel, The Rest of Their Lives, is set to charm the world. It’s hard to find love with a job like Ambroise’s – an embalmer in a small French town, he rarely spends time with the living. And while Manelle – a home-help for the elderly – enjoys her days taking care of her spirited clients, she finds her evenings are often spent with TV dinners for one. So when chance – and an unusual road trip – bring Ambroise and Manelle together, they are both more than ready for the rest of their lives to begin.
