Review by Lori W.
Widowed and pregnant in 1970, Carly finds out that her unborn baby has a heart defect. The doctors tell her that nothing can be done to save her child. She has two choices: terminate the pregnancy or carry the child to term knowing it will die shortly after birth. Carly’s brother-in-law, Hunter, tells her that there may be a way to save her baby after all. What he tells her is something Carly never imagined. Carly thinks he is having some sort of psychological breakdown and doesn’t want to hear what he has to say. Then, something Hunter predicted takes place, and she realizes she must believe and trust him. Desperation and love for her daughter drive Carly to do things she never thought she could or would do. This historical fiction book keeps you reading to see what happens next and tugs at your heart.
