Summary

Anna’s hands tense on Alice and she hesitates. In that endless pause, I see all I need to know. She doesn’t want to give Alice to me - not now, and not ever. And part of me doesn’t even blame her.... 

Milly always dreamed of being a mother. Adopted herself, she has always imagined a powerful, intimate connection with a child of her own. So when she and her husband Matt are told they can’t have children, her dreams are shattered. 

But then their loved ones offer the ultimate gift - Milly’s best friend Anna and Matt’s brother Jack will be donors, so that Milly can carry a child and finally have a chance to be a mother. And with everyone accepting and open, Milly believes that nothing could go wrong. 

Except none of the four people involved are prepared for the feelings that will threaten their most important relationships as their precious, longed-for daughter Alice grows up and receives a heartbreaking diagnosis. 

Then those who love her best will have to decide what it means to be a parent, and to make decisions with far-reaching and devastating consequences...for Alice, and for themselves. 

A powerful, heart-breaking novel guaranteed to make you cry, for fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain, and Gracie’s Secret.  

"Heart-wrenching and captivating… as good as anything Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain have ever written… gripping, engrossing and compelling." (bookishjottings.wordpress.com) 

"Oh my gosh! This book is sad, thrilling, gripping and completely pulls on your heart strings… Full of heartache, tough decisions, dilemmas, drama and struggles of everyday life… In two words, simply amazing!" (booksontheshelf.wordpress.com)

"One of the most poignant and life affirming novels… Beautiful, thought-provoking, insightful….and everything in between… Keep the tissues handy, you’re going to need them." (thewritinggarnet.wordpress.com)

Loved it

Loved listening to this book. Was very emotional and sad but had some happy moments aswell.
This book helps you to understand some struggles people go through with different diagnosis and so it’s good to hear a story about how a family coped with a disease on there child. It was lovely to hear how they make her life as fun as they can and enjoy every moment with her. Very inspirational!

An excellent moving story told beautifully

I thoroughly enjoyed this moving and surprisingly deep story. It had many twists and turns such that the title was fitting for different characters in different ways. Excellent indeed.

Enthralling...

This book was really interesting with a fascinating storyline and characters. It dealt with a number of traumatic social issues intertwining these experiences with great skill. Painful in many parts and not a glossy happy ending but well-written and thought-provoking. The audio performance was excellent and helped bring each character to life.
