Parental love is unconditional. Phil and Sarah are about to find out if that’s true. A deeply moving and powerful debut novel for fans of Jodi Picoult and Jojo Moyes.

A really good read, well liked by all our group members and it led to some of the best discussions we've had in a while. The ethical issues raised made us all question how we might react to this difficult situation. The clever twist at the end and the multiple voices giving different perspectives on the issues raised all made for a gripping read that held your attention to the end. We can highly recommend this book.
