Comfort Snowberger writes obituaries for fun. This is not a weird hobby for her- she grew up in a funeral home. Death is a common character in Comfort’s life. When her Great-great-aunt Florentine keels over one day in the garden bed, Comfort’s family comes together to honor their beloved relative. This includes cousin Peach, who is Comfort’s idea of a funeral-wrecker. To add more stress, Comfort’s best friend, Declaration, has started acting as cold as a dead body. The only one who brings Comfort any happiness is her dog, ironically named Dismay. Then the day of Great-great-aunt Florentine’s funeral service arrives, and tragedy comes in a surging flood. Comfort’s ease around death is suddenly deeply shaken, and she learns the awakening truth… that it hurts to lose someone you love. Despite the lingering sadness that this book carries, Comfort’s entourage of comical relief illuminates the beauty in this story.
