APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Prepare to have run out of tears by the time you finish this incredibly moving novel. Pip and Max are a couple who face an agonising dilemma when their young son suffers irreparable brain damage. Unable to agree on the best course of action, they ask the courts to decide their child’s fate. The story then alternates between two imagined outcomes: one in which a judge has said that Dylan should be allowed to die and one that speculates what would happen if the ruling sent him to the U.S. for further treatment. Partly drawn from Mackintosh’s own experiences of losing a child, each narrative forms an emotionally vivid and beautifully written study of grief, hope and the fragile, volatile nature of life. An unforgettable read.
This is the first book I’ve read where I am genuinely lost for words. You just need to read it, so beautifully written and emotional but at the same time happiness and hope.
I enjoyed reading this book from the moment I picked it up. So emotional and well written...it touched my soul. Loved the ending ❤️
You must read this book !
Incredibly thought provoking, sad but hopeful too. Extremely well written.
