‘OH MY GOD!... I opened it and my heart already started breaking. It broke more and more until I found myself with one million pieces of it… Made my heart bleed, my eyes well up and my bin fill up with wet tissues, but I ended with my heart full of warmth, my eyes crying happy tears and a big smile on my face. An amazingly beautiful story that I could not put down.’ B for Bookreview, 5 stars
There he is, my baby boy. His eyes are closed, his tiny rosebud mouth is pursed in sleep. My eyes well up as I catch a whiff of his newborn skin and I swallow back a wave of emotion. I should feel happy, I should feel grateful, but all I can think about is everything I just lost…
It’s a miracle when Katherine’s baby boy is born healthy. But his twin sister doesn’t survive, and when she is told she can’t carry any more children she is desperate to adopt a sibling for her son.
But her husband Davis won’t agree.
What if Katherine can’t cope with another child?
What if this breaks their marriage apart?
If Katherine fights for the second child she has always dreamed of, will she lose the family she already has?
An unforgettable and heart-wrenching page-turner about fighting for those we love. Readers of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will remember this story forever.

Wow, Sam can really make you feel the emotions and this one is no different.!
It deals with the loss of a baby and the pains of adoption.
It is about the sacrifices that a mother makes for her children and all we can do is hope we have made the correct choices. It features a mother and daughter hoping that the choices and sacrifices they make are the correct ones and once they open up and share their secrets, with each other, they learn more about motherhood.
