Back cover: Heidi loved her terminally ill infant nephew more than anything in the world, and she wanted to spare him from pain. Against all advice she removed him from the hospital and sang him lullabies under the night sky as he died in her arms.

But even as rage turned to love, Luke couldn't accept Heidi's choice. That meant turning his back on principles he'd spent his life upholding.
