Ahead of publication of Let’s Hope for the Best by Carolina Setterwall, we’re giving four reading groups the chance to win a set of 10 proofs for their group.

About the book…

One evening, Carolina says good night to her partner, Aksel. Things have been tough for both of them recently, especially with an eight-month-old son to raise. So when Aksel dies unexpectedly in the night, Carolina’s world is turned upside down.

Based on the author’s own experiences, Let’s Hope for the Best details the small moments of life before and after tragedy. It’s a story about motherhood, family and the difficulties of loving someone who is distant, and then who is gone. Brave and unsparing, packed with emotion and humanity, it is about how the life we envisage for ourselves can be altered in an instant.

What if one moment changed everything you’ve ever known?

Reader reviews:

‘A beautifully written story of love, families, motherhood and loss’

‘A heartbreaking, blisteringly honest read’

‘The courage with which Setterwall lays bare her thoughts and feelings is staggering’

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
