This is an absolutely heart touching story about the bonds a doctor forms with her patients and their parents. This story will keep you laughing and crying till the very end. So incredibly heartfelt and the fact that the book is inspired by a true story, only makes it that much more amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves a good book!
