As the wedding date draws near, April is forced to face a list of “lasts,” such as her last week of living at home and her last time being a single girl.

Another possible “last” opportunity presents itself for April when Dominic sets up a meeting for April with his book agent. With her health still in question, this opportunity may be April’s first (and last) chance to get a book published.
