Top Books of 2018 When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970 and there seems to be little that can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that something can be done to save her baby. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage that Caroline never knew she had. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on her part.
And all for the love of her unborn child.
A rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking novel about one mother’s quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a novel you will never forget.
