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 . . .

A creepy thriller that keeps you gripped until the end. It makes you wonder what you would do if you were in the same situation as the characters in the book.

This book was so intense! Full of twists but also very touching. I would recommend to anyone.
