Description

Mum's List The heartbreaking and heartwarming true story of a mother dying of a cancer and the special gift she left for her husband and two young sons - it'll have you crying and laughing equally.

Now a major film starring Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox, which the Guardian called 'Heartfelt, sweet and desperately sad'.

'Always kiss the boys goodbye and goodnight.'
'Please teach the boys to say what they mean.'
'Mummy loved orange Club biscuits, jam and jelly and lemon curd.'

For Kate Greene, nothing was as important as the happiness and well-being of her two little boys, Reef and Finn, and her loving husband, Singe. Even when she fell very ill, they were her only concern. Over her last few days, Kate created Mum's List. With Singe's help, she wrote her thoughts and wishes down, trying to help the man she loved create the best life for their sons after she was gone. Mum's List encapsulates Kate's passionate nature, her free spirit and even her sense of humour. It became Singe's rock, as he turned to it again and again for strength and inspiration. Slowly, gradually, Singe began to fulfil Kate's requests.

This is the heart-warming memoir of how Kate's list has helped Singe and his brave little boys move on and build a new life for themselves, while always keeping her in their hearts.

This updated edition contains new material from Singe and behind-the-scenes photos from the film adaptation of the book.

    Enthralling from start to finish - didn't want it to end. I lost my mother when I was 8 years old - that was some 45 years ago, she was 38 when she died. Reading this makes me realise how difficult it was for my own father, but also rather envious that he/we didn't have a mum's list. Good luck with the rest of the list.

    Settle down with a box of tissues and a pot of tea and reflect on your own life and ask yourself the question, am I living my life to the fullest?

    (Purchased after watching an interview with Singe and the boys on itv 'this morning') An inspirational, yet truly sad but warming life story. Through such tragic, it is heartwarming to find that the memories of a wonderful woman still lives on, with the help of mum's list and stories told by singe. To Singe, Reef and Finn thanks for sharing your life with us and good luck in the future. I have certainly walked away grabbing this quote with both hands 'life is too short, so make sure you live everyday to the full'
