Summary

Grace and Tom Penderford are the luckiest people alive. 

They have a wonderful marriage, a comfortable life and a beautiful baby girl, Chloe. Then, in a heartbeat, happiness becomes despair, and their lives change forever. 

When three-year-old Chloe falls ill and dies, Tom and Grace's world is ripped apart. As their family of three becomes two, they must find a way to mend each other's broken hearts...and save their marriage, if they can.

Not as good as her other books,little bit rushed at the end. Good pointers on sepsis awareness.

A must read with a very important message.

Amanda Prowse has managed to sensitively write this book so well. To make others aware of sepsis and send out such a powerful message is to be commended.
As a mother myself who has lost a child, I felt the rollercoaster of emotions was captured perfectly, from being completely broken to finding a coping 'new normal'.
I will not lie, I cried constantly throughout my listening journey, but could relate to all the characters. For me I found the epilogue to be Just perfect, bringing a strength to the books ending. Highly recommend to all.
