Summary

Her love for her daughter is everything.

Her love for him is deadly.

Cath had 25 perfect days with her newborn daughter before Mia's deadly illness was diagnosed.

As her life implodes, Cath’s despair drives her to a parental support group where she meets a father in a similar situation, the dangerously attractive Richard - charming, handsome and adamant that a cure for their children lies just over the horizon: everything Cath wants to believe.

Their affair - and the chance to escape reality - is unavoidable but carries catastrophic consequences: the nature of Mia’s illness means that Cath’s betrayal endangers not just her marriage but the life of her baby.

Can she stop herself before it’s too late?

Not your average fiction

I absolutely loved this book! very well written on such a fraught subject. Deliciously dark in places where choosing the right path becomes so imperative it has a nail biting quality.
