Camryn and Adele are the very best of friends from their meeting. They stand by each other thru thick and thin---until Camryn finds out two weeks before the wedding that Adele slept with her fiance. The wedding is off, the friendship is over, until two years later Adele contacts Camryn: she is dying, and she wants Camryn to adopt her daughter. It's not an easy decision for Camryn---she's still angry with Adele and she has never, EVER wanted children, she's busy building a successful career but Adele has no one else to turn to. This wasn't one of those trite, 200 page romances. Sure there is a romance, but the real focus is on the evolving relationship between Camryn and Tegan, how Camryn reluctantly and painfully sacrifices her lofty career goals for more humble one suited to a single mother, and how Camryn learns to forgive Adele and live her life. I really enjoyed this book and basically read it in a single sitting. I can't wait to look up more of Dorothy Koomson's books.

An eye-opening journey of redemption, motherly love and an understanding of the fragility of the human condition. This is a charming book about families and how it doesn't take the colour of ones skin to say who is a mother and who is her daughter.

The premise is one I had not encountered in literature before. I found it to be thought- provoking and rather enlightening. I would definitely recommend it.

Couldn't put this one down once I peeked at the first two pages to see when I wanted to read it. Not your usual sappy chick lit, but a well thought out story of love, death, forgiveness, and moving on after a loss. I highly recommend this one.

Wow...this book blew me away. It's was a rollercoaster of a ride and I wanted to stop reading it and continue until I was done, both at the same time.

I don't keep most books, they are swapped or donated. However, I couldn't give this one up. It's in a friend's hands right now being read after I highly recommended it to her.

This is the first book I've read by this author. However, it definitely won't be the last!

i enjoyed this book, the subject matter is a bit heavy for 'chick lit' so i would not call it typical. i liked the story and the characters were well drawn. I like her writing style and would consider another of her books in the future.
