Given only one month to live, 50 year old Ambrose Zephyr decides to take his wife, Zipper and travel around the world A-Z.

This is a love story first and far most. The destinations around the world are secondary and in fact they end up having to cut the trip short due to Amborse’s failing health. It is also about coming to terms with the inevitable loss.

Richardson’s prose jumps off the page while reading this poignant little story. It is funny, sad, and intelligent all at the same time. The only problem with it is that I wanted to know more. I wanted to know more about Ambrose and his wife’s history. This book was only 139 pages though it could have been still under 150, but our curiosity about the past could have been quenched.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by CS Richardson!
