THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER ‘Superb, many stranded and grimly topical’ The Times
Five years ago, Charlotte O’Keefe had everything she could want: a loving husband, a wonderful daughter and another child on the way.
But when Willow was born with brittle bone disease, this perfect life shattered before her eyes. Now, as the years have gone by and the costs to care for Willow have mounted up, the family has begun to falter under the pressure of caring for their sick child.
In Charlotte’s eyes, only one person could have stopped this from happening: Piper, her obstetrician and best friend, who didn’t advise Charlotte that she might want to terminate the pregnancy. Now, as she stands in court, she must defend the unthinkable.
That she would have chosen for her daughter to not be born.
International bestselling author Jodi Picoult explores the complexities of a mother’s love in this topical and emotional bestseller.
