The story follows the plight of a young mother whose five-year-old son is diagnoses with leukemia. It’s difficult to go into more detail with the plot without giving things away because it’s one of those wonderfully layered stories in which events unravel bit by bit and we learn what’s happening along with the characters.

It’s definitely a tear-jerker. To be honest, it’s not the most well-written book you’ll ever read, and yes, some parts are predictable but it’s a powerful story. It makes you think, ponder some questions that perhaps you haven’t considered in awhile, or if you have, perhaps provide some answers. It’s definitely a tear-jerker, and the kind of book you’ll want to share. In fact, I gave my copy away about twenty
