Your life or your unborn child’s – how do you choose?
Paige and Nick are happy. They have a beautiful home, a loving family and, most importantly, they would do anything for each other. Now, they are having a baby and it feels like all their dreams are coming true.
But joy turns to despair when they discover that Paige has a rare, life-threatening heart condition and they lose their longed-for child. Heartbroken, the couple must accept the reality that they may not become parents after all.
Just as they begin to come to terms with their loss, Paige unexpectedly falls pregnant again. Paige’s heart is still weak, and to carry the baby to term puts them both at risk. The couple now face an impossible decision: Paige’s life or the life of their unborn child?
If Paige keeps the baby, she could lose her life and destroy the man she loves. If Nick tries to stop her, he may lose them both forever. It’s the most important decision they have ever had to make – and time is running out.
My Life for Yours is a heartbreaking, gripping and emotional story about love, loss and an impossible choice, perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Kelly Rimmer and Kate Hewitt.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Australian novelist Vanessa Carnevale pens an emotional, high-stakes story of unconditional love. After a devastating miscarriage, Paige Hutton discovers she’s once again pregnant and is shocked to learn that there are potentially fatal risks to carrying this baby to term. Everyone in Paige’s life—her hilariously filter-free mother, her exceedingly pragmatic pediatric-surgeon husband, her frenzied sister—has an opinion about what she should do about this frightening, confusing predicament. The way Carnevale injects flashes of comedy into this dark and emotional story reminds us of another great novelist from Down Under: Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty. My Life for Yours is a heartfelt, often tearful read that takes unexpected turns and asks us to think differently about the meaning of family.

Riveting to the end

My Life for Yours
This was the best story I have read in a long time. I could not put it down. I even prayed that the end would be better. When I thought it was over, the end surprised me in a good way. Truly heart warming.
