Summary

She gave you everything. But what does she want in return?  

When Lizzie's daughter, Meg, is given a life-saving heart transplant, Lizzie feels hugely grateful to the nameless donor. Then, she receives a letter from the donor's mother, Karen, asking to meet, and it seems like the least she can do.  

But as soon as Karen is welcomed into their lives, Lizzie feels something isn't right. And before long, she can't help but worry that by inviting Karen in, she might have put Meg in danger....

Brilliant

This has been one of those books you couldn't wait to listen too. The narrator did a great job and the story was gripping. Would make a great film. I recommend this book for sure. 👍

Gripping

I didn't realise at first how short this book was, but I I thoroughly enjoyed it. The book tells the story of a couple whose daughter has a heart condition and receives a heart from a teenage boy who dies in a bike accident. Or does she? I can't give the storyline away. The ending wraps it up nicely. Short but worth the credit.
