As soon as I heard Mark Ernest Pothier's What Will You Miss Most? was available, I had to read it. His stories grab my attention and his characters wrench my heart. Again, I was brought to tears.
What Will You Miss Most? is a story of coping with loss. Louise isn't dissatisfied with life, but things haven't been going her way for a while. When her father passes in a freak accident we are shown how sometimes a greater loss can put everything in perspective.
