New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice works her singular magic in this deeply felt novel about two unforgettable couples, linked by a shared history, separated by decisions made long ago. What if you could relive one time in your life? What would you choose if you could make one thing right? For Bernadette and Tom, it is a return to their roots in Ireland and a love that broke every rule and could have withstood any consequence—but the one that broke their hearts. For James and Kathleen, whose indelible bond was forged in a Dublin orphanage before one was adopted and carried across the sea to America, it is a reunion they’ve dreamed of all their young lives, even if it defies reason. From the Emerald Isle to the Connecticut shore, four lives are about to come together in a confrontation that will challenge each of them to leave behind the past and all they once thought was important, and to embrace at last what matters most.

Chris Woodhead stimulated controversy and roused passions. He is best known as the Chief Inspector of Schools who demanded higher standards across the board. Admired and condemned in equal measure, he was forthright in his views and they became part of the national education debate. But he was a courageous man who confronted taboos wherever they lay. His final challenge was with Motor Neurone Disease and death, which he confronted with an empathy and eloquence that struck a chord with many people. His education journalism is the core of this book but it also reflects his passions for literature and climbing, all written with the precision and clarity that became his hallmark. What Matters Most concludes with his fearless thoughts on assisted dying and with a challenge for people to be allowed to die with dignity at a time of their own choosing.
