Book Description

When my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer he was told by his doctor that he had "weeks rather than months" to live.
If I wasn't already aware of it, the clock had - at that moment - truly started.
It was to stop just one week later when my father died - and it's those seven days which form the basis of this true account.
Divided into seven days, this is a story that faces up to the thoughts and fears that we all have - of growing older, of losing a parent, of saying what we really think, and of learning to live again.
So, if you're having a mid-life crisis...

'I wasn't sure about embarking on this read to begin with - fearing a "woe is me" account - but this book isnt! It is refreshing, honest, clear, and insightful.'

'Reading this made me cry, smile, hurt and heal a bit more...This book made me feel NORMAL!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down 27 Oct. 2011
By NigelB
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book from front to back in one day whilst travelling on a business trip and found it tugged at my heart and at times made me want to cry.
I recently have lost my dad who like Ashley's father was a solid bloke and a great guy. The way Ashley put's pen to paper stirs the emotions and sets to remind us that we are here for a very short time, we should therefore enjoy what life we have, and make the most of it as It only comes around once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven Days to Say I Love You. 28 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
After losing my Mum, Sister and then my Dad to the big C I knew I had to read this book!
Mum went through it for around 6 months, my Sister for about 6 years and my Dad 1 day!
I didn't even get that day to say I Love You as by the time my Dad was diagnosed, the same day he went to hospital, I was in London and had to drive up to Manchester, before I set off I was watching The Bill, Dads favorite show.

Whilst watching I thought "Dad would like to be watching this"

Then I knew he had passed away before I'd even left...
Sure enough my Brother phoned me to tell me just that.

Still went though to see my Dad but it was hard and I felt a bit of regret.
I wanted to see him alive one more time but I was out of luck.

Anyway, this book is an emotional roller-coaster and well worth a read even if you haven't been affected by Cancer.

Well done Ashley, I'm certain your Dad would be chuffed at your courage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly honest and relatable 4 Sept. 2011
By Jo B
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a beautifully written account of a subject that is often softened to make for easier reading. The frankness of Ashley Hames is both admirable and relatable in a way that so few authors can be when it comes to speaking of the gamut of emotions that are associated with grief.

The often searing honesty, when talking of guilt, fear, denial, selfishness and despair of losing a loved one is something that stays with you in a way that makes you grateful for having found someone else who understands that these are feelings many of us have had, but are too afraid or even ashamed to admit to have felt ourselves.

It is a genuinely gratifying read, without at any point being patronising or clichéd and offers very palpable hope to anyone who will find themselves reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking yet it mended mine 3 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't good with death - I know and I acknowledge this fact...

I never dealt with death - just locked it up and pushed everything to the back of my mind. I thought THAT was being brave and COPING - at least I did until I read this book, cried my heart out and realised that you're a hell of a lot braver if you tackle it.

The writing is strong, poetic at times and very, very real. The language of grief tugs at the heart whilst the timely humorous moments lift you up by your boot straps and drag you on through. I have been the dishevelled hermit - I excelled in it; this book allowed me to go all Carpe Diem on my ass.

Since reading this book, I'm getting back to being me again.
I'm learning what family is meant to be about - and trust me - I've been brought up with some very odd ideas about family.
I feel like I've taken that step towards dealing with grief like a grown up.

Ashley - thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven Days To Say I Love You 28 Dec. 2011
By luke
Format:Kindle Edition
(by mrsbheaven) I lost my dad 3 years ago to prostate cancer,terminal at time of diagnosis. This book is a wonderful tribute to a father,I wish I was eloquent enough to express the emotions like Ashley Hames does. Reading this unlocked some of my frustration,helplessness,guilt and other feelings that can be hard to articulate when they are so personal. It made me cry,smile,hurt and heal a bit more.You never get over the loss,but to my mind anything that makes living with it a bit easier is worth the read.This book made me feel NORMAL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and emotional book 28 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Ive liked watching Ashleys stuff on tv so I was interested to see he had written a book, though the subject was a bit grim but brave. This ebook is a bargain price and turned out to be an excellent read. It's funny but also very emotional in places in what is a very personal matter.

It's gone on to show what a truly top bloke he is and im looking forward to more books from him.

I would definitely recommend this book to people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good 10 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i wasnt sure about embarking on this read to begin with, fearing a 'woe is me' account of a dying loved one, but the book isnt! It is a refreshing, honest account of the loss of a parent and how it personally relates to the author. The style is not flowered or over the top but clear, insightful and honest. i thoroughly enjoyed it and was moved. The moment when the author's grandfather is also lost and the news broken to his grandmother had me momentarily choked. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling read 7 Sept. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Though the subject of this book may be difficult for some, the author makes you want to read on and make you reflect on your own experiences. The honesty and transparency is a welcome break from the usual sugar coated accounts of grief and loss that are available. This is essential reading and will undoubtedly make you want to make the most of your time with your loved ones.
