Then the unthinkable happens.

One morning, on his way to work, Ed is knocked off his bike and dies. Now, Zoe must find a way to survive. But she’s not ready to let go of the memories. How can she forget all of the happy times, their first kiss, everything they’d built together? Zoe decides she has to tell Ed all the things she never said.

Now it’s too late. Or is it?
