Hello bloggie friends! Thank you for all the comments on my book review of Breakthrough by Stephen Tremp. I hope you don't get tired of my posts but today's post is another book recommendation that I feel I must tell you about because it is really a good one!
Hopefully, my next post will be more exciting than a book review *fingers crossed*
Hope you are having a beautiful Wednesday!!!
To save your daughter
You must tell the world
You wish she'd never been born.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Back cover blurb:
Willow O'Keefe had seven broken bones before she took her first breath.
Now her life is lived on a knife-edge. Born with brittle bone disease, she will never learn to skate like her sister. Even walking can be dangerous: one wrong step and she is back in a cast.
The medical bills are crippling her family. So when a lawyer tells Charlotte, her mother, that they might have a case to sue for wrongful birth, she feels bound to consider it.
Except that winning would mean losing her best friend - and telling the world that she wishes her much-longed for, adored daughter had never been born...
Why I like it:
I have read four other books of Jodi Picoult. I must say, this, so far, is the best. Very beautifully written. So poetic from beginning to end. With the most impressive details, obviously a well-researched work. It's a story full of not just love, but 'heart' itself.
Willow, a 6-year old little girl is the character with osteogenesis imperfecta in this beautiful story. The prologue alone tore my heart to pieces. I must admit that it hit home. I saw myself in Charlotte. This is a must-read. Whether you are a mother or not, I think you will enjoy every page of this book. It has taught me a lot about a condition that was unknown to me. And it shows a life of a family with a child with special needs lead.
With an unexpected ending, I was left with a bleeding heart. Being a writer myself, what other way would I end a story like this but to give the main character a little bit of mercy? It wasn't the perfect ending. I didn't like it. In real life, it would have broken people's heart. But as a reader, it left me something to think about. And a question that Charlotte may be asking Sean, "What do we do now?"
