Overview

I grip my husband's hand tight. The doctor is frowning. "Mr and Mrs Marcello... I'm so sorry." She tells us there's been a terrible mistake. Our last embryo-our last chance-was accidentally given to someone else. The child we made four years ago calls another woman "Mommy."

Quinn cries silent tears as she folds a tiny knitted cardigan, bought in a moment of hope, and packs it away. All she's ever wanted is to be a mother. Although her husband James brings her comfort, the knowledge they have no embryos left, and that their child is out there being raised by another family, is tearing them both apart.

When the lawyers tell them there's a chance to get custody, James is unsure. But Quinn knows she has to take it: if only to look her little girl in the eyes, just once. Meeting Emily and the woman who raised her, Quinn's heart cracks wide open. Emily looks just like Quinn, right down to her curly hair. And when the little girl flings her arms around Quinn's waist, she can't shake the feeling this is where Emily is meant to be.

As the two families reckon with an unimaginable decision, a secret from James' past surfaces... one that forces Quinn to question everything she thought she wanted. But how will they decide what's right for the little girl they all love so dearly? And where does Emily truly belong?

An absolutely unputdownable, heart-wrenching read about two families torn apart by one terrible mistake. Anyone who loves Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper, Diane Chamberlain and Catherine Ryan Hyde won't be able to put this down.
