From the author of Valley of Grace comes a powerful novel of love, the desire for understanding, and the inevitable messiness of life.

A successful lawyer, bon vivant, loving husband and father, has a heart attack and dies while swimming in the local pool. A man apparently happily married, yet, with two divorces behind him and three puzzled children. In death it seems that he is not the person everyone thought.

As his extended family gathers to mourn, secrets and lies unfold uncomfortably around them. Those pornographic images on his laptop? An unexpected lover - is he still philandering? But somewhere in the turmoil of mourning each of them has to find an answer to the question - who was this man really? What mysteries has he taken to the grave with him?

Goodbye Sweetheart is a powerful novel of love, the desire for understanding, and the inevitable messiness of life.
