The Life Impossible is a story of wild adventure, deep transformation and gloriously heartwarming characters. It shows how a new outlook can burst into life at any moment and change everything.

What looks like magic is simply a part of life we don’t understand yet …

When retired Maths teacher Grace is left a rundown house on a Mediterranean island by a long-lost friend, curiosity gets the better of her. She arrives in Ibiza with a one-way ticket, no guidebook and no plan.

Among the rugged hills and golden beaches of the Balearics, Grace searches for answers about her friend’s life and how it ended. What she uncovers is stranger than she could have dreamed.

But to dive into this impossible truth, Grace must first come to terms with her past.

Filled with wonder and wild adventure, this is a story of hope and the life-changing power of a new beginning.
