A story of love, tough choices and the triumph of the human heart
Jenny Dempsey has exchanged life in the fast lane for freelance journalism and being a mum. She doesn’t look back. Why would she? A broken engagement to her fiancé, Dave. A falling-out with her parents. And a night in a hotel room best forgotten. Life is simple now. Jenny’s little boy, Charlie, is starting school, beginning to build a life independent from her. She needs to reclaim her own. Life, though, has other plans. When Charlie is diagnosed with leukaemia, Jenny is forced to confront her past and everything she has turned from. But she will do anything… for Charlie.
‘Entwines the threads of mystery, plot and character into a compelling yarn that charms and chills, but always captivates.’
‘…a moving story of a mother’s love and a woman’s personal development.’
‘The author fizzes through the pages, bringing out the positive in tragic events and, once again, manages to inject humour and pace, as well as empathy, into a harrowing topic.’
‘…could only have been written by a woman who loves children and their ways because the dialogue so authentically captures the child’s voice and personality.’
