End of the Alphabet, by C. S. Richardson
The End of the Alphabet is a lovely little novel that packs a big emotional wallop.

He decides that he and his wife will spend it traveling to the places he has most loved or longed to see. They'll go by way of the alphabet: A is for Amsterdam, B is for Berlin, C is for Chartres.The writing borders on precious, but it comes back to earth at all the right places” Bob Minzesheimer, USA TODAY
