Can one act of love break a family apart?
Alex believes that she can overcome anything, so when her partner Sam needs a life-saving transplant she doesn't hesitate to offer him a kidney of her own.
She thinks it will be easy. Donate kidney. Get back to work. Keep running the family, as she has done for the many years that Sam has been ill. Life will go on.
But she doesn't foresee how hard the operation will hit her, leaving her reeling just as Sam's life starts to soar. As he pursues his second chance in ways she never expected, Alex is left questioning her role in the family - and her relationships with him and their two children.
As the threads which hold her life together start to unravel, can Alex figure out ups and downs of her new reality before everything falls apart?
The Rest of Me is a moving, emotional novel about a family navigating the aftermath of a shattering event. It will make you laugh and cry, and remind you of the importance of family and love.
Katie Marsh lives in south-west London with her family. Before being published she worked in healthcare, and her books are inspired by the bravery of the people she has met in hospitals and clinics around the country.
Katie loves strong coffee, the feel of a blank page and stealing her husband's toast. Her debut novel, My Everything, was chosen by the Evening Standard as one of the hottest summer debuts of 2015. Her second novel, A Life Without You, was a smash-hit ebook bestseller. This Beautiful Life is her third novel.
