Caroline used to have it all: she was madly in love with her husband, Peter, and they worshiped their beautiful baby girl. But as Lily grows into a toddler, Caroline notices that her daughter seems to live and act with a disconnect, and soon the perfect future Caroline had envisioned, along with her marriage, begin to crumble. Now she and Peter are no longer lovers, they're plaintiffs in the throes of divorce while still struggling to care for Lily. After years of blame and overwhelming despair, Caroline's chance encounter with a stranger at University Hospital opens her eyes to the prospect of accepting new support, new loves, and new dreams.
From the acclaimed author of The Final Piece comes a story of a family broken and unable to cope with a daughter's disability. And a mother who finds that letting go of the life she imagined may be the only way to get to the life she was meant for.

Lovely story. Poignant, romantic and joyful. I could feel Caroline's pain over her daughter. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yet another good read by Maggie Myers. Beautifully read by Kate Rudd. I would definitely recommend this book.
iPad, Audible & wireless headphones - a recipe for relaxing the grey matter and making tedious household tasks and travel more bearable!
One of the loveliest stories I have come across via Audible.
Not a good idea to listen to the ending whilst driving - very emotional.
Excellently narrated - clear, articulate and characters well defined.
"This book is too boring"
This is one if the worst book I bought . I just couldn't finish it , too repetitious and dragged on. A waste of money .
"Where is the story?"
I really don't know. I would not think anyone would like this book.
No. I just don't like this book.

This book tells of the ups and downs of raising a child with special needs. The author gives you the pleasure to experience the love that a Mother has for her child. Thank you.
