Read full description of the books:
WHEN Bob and Anna McAllister are both diagnosed with terminal illnesses within weeks of each other, they try to reach out to their adult children but everyone is too busy to hear the devastating news.
Bob, 78, moved from Glasgow to Brisbane in 1960 and worked as an accountant. He met Brisbane born and bred Anna, a school teacher, a few years later and they married and raised three children. They had been retired for eighteen years and enjoyed being together and taking cruises.
In 2016, after a year in remission from breast cancer, Anna, 75, discovers that her cancer has returned and has spread to other parts of her body. She must decide whether to endure more gruelling bouts of surgery and therapy or enjoy the short time she has left to live. In a sad twist of fate, Bob suffers another major heart attack and his congestive heart failure has progressed to a stage where he also has only a short time to live.
Rather than spend their remaining days in care, they decide to take one last cruise to the South Pacific - have one last hurrah - and not return from their holiday.
Author Carmel McMurdo Audsley said the novella is a work of fiction but covers a topical subject - the right to die on your own terms.
“The storyline in no way reflects my views and I don’t have a barrow to push - I am simply the teller of a story that may make you think about your life and the people in it,” Ms Audsley said.
“It’s a sad love story, about two elderly people who are devoted to each other, and the disconnect that sometimes happens when family members are too busy being busy to notice they are needed.”
