The Collected Regrets of Clover by Mikki Brammer – Our Review


Our Review…

The Collected Regrets of Clover by Mikki Brammer is a stunning, tender, and beautiful story about a death doula who selflessly walks people through their last moments yet fails to see just how much magic and beauty she brings to all who’s lives she graces.

Clover has always been comfortable around death. Even from a young child, it appears that the dying always seem to find her in their final moments.

Raised by her wonderful grandfather, Clover can’t forgive herself for travelling abroad while he spent his final moments alone, committing to do everything in her power to walk with as many people as she can as they pass from life to death. Graciously holding their hands through all the fear, regrets, and trepidation, reflecting on their life lived as a process of letting go.

Clover is so compelled to care, that she barely lives a life of her own. Basically, living as recluse, struggling to find her own sense of love and life, surrounded by those on the cusp of death.

Until, the dying wishes of an elderly woman, pushes Clover to be courageous, vulnerable, and open to the softness around her, and the beauty of her own happiness and connection.

A really beautiful book, that is a gentle reminder of the important things in life. A grounding read that is quirky, adoringly magnificent and one of my favourites this year.
