Filled with all the larger-than-life characters and enchanting storytelling that made readers fall for The Reader on the 6.27, Jean-Paul Didierlaurent’s follow-up novel, The Rest of Their Lives, is set to charm the world.

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 . . .
