Bebhinn lost her husband, Alastair, very suddenly, leaving her with two sons under 4 to care for. This book takes the reader through her painful journey, but without being a 'misery memoir'. She describes with elegance (and the odd burst of gallows humour) the maelstrom of emotions that assailed her from every side throughout their ordeal, the heartbreak of losing Alastair, bargaining with God, with anyone, to bring him back to her. But he doesn't come back and instead she is left to carry on without him. She decides to follow their dreams despite his absence, manages to find her way through the pain and come to an acceptance of her loss and to an emergence of new joys, even without her soulmate at her side. Bebhinn is a gifted writer: there's no schmaltz here, just honest, beautiful words, and I wish her and her wonderful boys the best of everything in the years to come.

By Chris from Hampshire TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Feb. 2013
Format: Paperback
Love's Last Gift is a truly beautiful book written by a young woman who turned a tragedy into hope for less fortunate children in Florianopolis, Brazil.

Bebhinn (pronounced Bay-Veen) had found and married her soul mate, Alastair Ramsay, and was the mother of two boys (3yrs and 1yr). Life was good, Alastair had an executive job but was working 60 hour weeks. Bebhinn concentrated on child rearing and studing for her masters. She is happy, but since having the children, life has changed so much that Bebhinn longs for more balance in her life. There is some resentment for the long hours that her beloved Alastair spends at work. The couple have many wine-fuelled discussions and in 2007, Alastair contemplates cutting down the hours he spends at work.

Alastair and Bebhinn are well travelled and have friends all over the place. It is May 2007 and they are off on a 2 week holiday to the USA, to meet up with Alastair's friends in San Francisco. Little did they know the tragic events that were going to befall them and so soon after they arrived in the US.

Bebhinn's book is a soulful, touching, account of events and how she seeks to get through them and to make sense and come to terms with this vast change in the lives of her and her sons Tom and Liam. It is truthful and beautiful and Bebhinn takes the reader with her through her journey, her search for meaning and closure.

This is a beautiful book, honestly written and is full of love, hope and courage. Anyone who feels they have troubles and problems should read this book and gain some strength from Bebhinn's experiences and her drive to carry on and do something meaningful as a long lasting tribute to her beloved husband Alastair Ramsay.

It is a book not to be forgotten. The reader will not fail to be moved by it and will always remember this memoir.

This is a wonderfully written, moving account of how Bebhinn copes with the sudden, tragic death of her husband aged just 39. It is a compelling read which I found impossible to put down.

Love's Last Gift was written by a college classmate who suffered the sudden death of her beloved husband and father of their young sons.

It is heart-wrenchingly tragic, but also amazingly lucid on the intricate details of dealing with grief.

Beautifully written, it is inspiring and gives faith in the human spirit. Read it before it's made into a film!
