about

'A heart-warming and a heart-breaking story, beautifully written and sensitive ... compelling' Woman's Way 'A fascinating exploration of difficult subjects ... Moriarty writes with compelling authority' Irish Times 'There is warmth and heart aplenty in this delicately told story' Daily Mail 'OMG! I'm an emotional wreck after reading this novel, probably not helped by the fact that I pulled an all-nighter to finish it ... I just could not put it down' Eileen Dunne, RTÉ Kate has been through the fire with her three children ... Having been left devastated and homeless after her husband's affair and the break-up of their family, somehow she has pulled through. Though times are still tough, she's beginning to see the start of a new life. But when twelve-year-old Jesssica is diagnosed with cancer, Kate's resilience is put to the ultimate test.

And in the middle of it a beloved child who is trying to be brave but is getting sicker by the day. Kate knows she must put to one side her own fear and heartbreak and do right by her children, particularly Jessica. But maybe doing the right thing means doing the unthinkable?
