Ten top difficult love stories

Graeme Simsion is a former IT consultant with an international reputation. His screen adaptation of The Rosie Project won the Australian Writers Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script. Simsion lives in Australia with his wife, Anne, and their two children, and is currently working on a sequel to The Rosie Project.

One of Simsion's ten top difficult love stories, as shared at the Guardian:
Goodbye for Now by Laurie Frankel

Anyone who has spent time interacting with Siri on their iPhone will require only a slight stretch of the imagination to accept the premise here – reconstructing online personalities from social media records after the death of their owners. After Sam programs a Skype version of Meredith's late grandmother, the two go into the business of bringing back the deceased. The twist is predictable, but it's engrossing light reading that will leave you with something to think about after you've finished with the tissues.
