A tragic but hopeful story of single fatherhood. Now a major motion picture on Netflix, starring Kevin Hart. ‘It will make you cry… for the beauty of love and its miraculous power to heal.’ John Grogan, author of Marley & Me
Matt and Liz Logelin had it all: a perfect marriage, a gorgeous new home in LA, and a baby girl on the way. Just twenty-seven hours after they welcomed a healthy Madeline into the world, Liz suffered a pulmonary embolism and died instantly, without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited.
Though confronted with devastating grief and the responsibilities of being a new and single father, Matt did not give in. He chose to keep moving forward – to make a life for Maddy. In his memoir, Matt shares bittersweet and often humorous anecdotes of his courtship and marriage to Liz, of relying on his newborn daughter for the support that she unknowingly provided, and of the extraordinary online community of strangers who have become his friends. In honouring Liz’s legacy, heartache has become solace.
