Overview Jeg skulle ha sagt jeg elsker deg

Are we looking out for the important moments in our lives? Are we following our dreams?When our time comes, can we manage to close life's book with the reassurance of knowing that we have lived the life we wanted to?

Dr. Audun Myskja has sat by many deathbeds and had many difficult but fulfilling conversations with the dying. Here he writes about people who will soon have completed their life on Earth.

People's inmost longings and wishes come out, with remorse about what didn't happen, joy about the bright moments, and the love and sincerity which life also offered. Myskja weaves the stories together with his own reflections based on his long experience as a doctor.

This is a warm and thoughtful book which moves the reader to reflect on his own life and what it is being used for.
