Peter Nugent, manager of a theatre company in Wellington and former actor, has just been diagnosed with cancer when he receives devastating news that his beloved 17 year-old granddaughter, Melanie, has committed suicide.
The tragedy saps his will to go on living.
He learns from Robin Blackwell, hospital employee and pro-lifer, that Melanie had an abortion just before she died. Blackwell incites Peter to action against his granddaughter's boyfriend then against the doctor Blackwell identifies as the abortionist.
But not everything is as it seems. Peter struggles first with his conscience then with his heart.
"A powerful book" - Andrew Killick.
