The poignant and emotive new novel from Katie Marsh, author of MY EVERYTHING and A LIFE WITHOUT YOU.

'Katie Marsh writes achingly beautiful, life-affirming stories that break your heart and refuel your hope' - Miranda Dickinson

What happens when you get the second chance you never expected?

Abi Cooper is living her happy ending. She's in remission and is ready to make the most of her second chance at life. But during Abi's illness her family has fallen apart. Her husband John has made decisions that are about to come back to haunt him, while her teenage son Seb is battling with a secret of his own.

Set to the songs on Abi's survival playlist, THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE is the moving and uplifting story of what happens as Abi tries to put her family back together - and of why life, and love, are worth fighting for.

From the bestselling author of A Life Without You, this is an emotional and gorgeously uplifting story perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes.
