Overview

You love your best friend.

You trust her with your life.

But could you give her the most precious gift of all?

Alex’s life is a mess. She’s barely holding down a job, only just affording her apartment, and can’t remember when she was last in a relationship. An unexpected pregnancy is the last thing she needs.

Martha’s life is on track. She’s got the highflying career, the gorgeous home and the loving husband. But one big thing is missing. Five rounds of IVF and still no baby.

The solution seems simple.

Alex knows that Martha can give her child everything that she can’t provide. But Martha’s world may not be as perfect as it seems, and letting go isn’t as easy as Alex expected it to be.

Now they face a decision that could shatter their friendship forever.

Provocative. Emotional. Affecting. Share This Fragile Life with your best friend.

Praise for Kate Hewitt

'OMG! Ladies grab a box of Kleenex and get ready for one of the most moving, most poinent books that I have ever read.' - Harlequin Junkie

'This book had me nodding my head in agreement at times, laughing at others and also broke my heart. ... It kept me on the edge of an emotional abyss while I read it and even though it broke my heart, it was a totally satisfying read. Word to the wise – don’t read in public!' - Between My Lines

'It’s impossible not to be sucked into the worlds of Martha and Alex... One of my favorites of the year, and I do plan on sharing this with my girlfriends!' - Chick Lit Plus

'I highly recommend this read, it was heart-warming, gut wrenching, emotional and extremely powerful.' - Family Saga Reviews

This is my first Kate Hewitt book. It was fantastic. It totally gripped me reading page after page never knowing what was to happen next. Definately not predictable. The writing was extraordinary. I felt the characters' pain. Once I finished the book, I couldn't wait to get another from this author. To my dismay, this is the only authentic book she has written. The rest are all Harlequen Romances. What a disappointment. Kate- ditch the romance and give us some more of this type of writing. If you are a Jodi Picoult fan, you will love this book.

An amazing read. Written with care and warmth. Strong emotions are portrayed , which are based on real emotions and heartbreak

This could have been me 45 years ago. I was unable to get p g . I was in a great relationship.. a good place. I was under a dr.s care. The hormones.shots and all that went with that after 4 years eventually destroyed me..it took a long time to come to terms with it if ever. I never had any children natural or otherwise. Now its to late im 65... I ache still.
