A Hope For Emily

I’m delighted to be part of the book tour today for this wonderful book. Thanks to Bookoutoure for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

About the Book:

Looking back, I wish I could find my way back to that moment. I’d snatch it and hold onto it and live in it for the rest of my life, if I could. When Emily could still throw her arms around me. Oh God, just give me that moment, or one like it again. That’s all I want.

From the moment Emily was born, reaching out with her tiny little star-shaped hand towards her mother, blinking with long eyelashes over soft blue eyes, she became Rachel’s whole world.

But Rachel’s worst nightmare comes true when a rare auto-immune illness leaves five-year-old Emily in a coma the doctors say she may never come out of. And Rachel has to make a heartbreaking decision—one that her ex-husband, Emily’s dad James, doesn’t agree with.

Terrified she’s going to lose her daughter for good, Rachel knows she must find a way to keep the hope alive for Emily. But there is only one person she can turn to for help to convince James—his new wife, Eva.

As an unlikely but powerful friendship develops between the two women, both Rachel and Eva will have to ask themselves—what is truly the right choice for the tiny, fragile little girl who lies between them?

A beautiful story that will break your heart into a million pieces, perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Susan Lewis.

My Review:

This is such a moving and beautiful book.

When do you give up, or how far will you go for your child? In this story we can see Rachel’s point of view, she can’t give up on her child if there’s even the slightest chance that what she’s doing will help Emily, even if it’s only a small improvement. On the other hand, James feels that the opinions of the medical team are right, and that the kindest thing might be to let her go peacefully. Rachel’s whole life revolves around the hospital and Emily, and perhaps it’s too much. Then there’s Eva, caught in the middle, but with her own views and feelings. In the centre of it all is little Emily, who we get glimpses of as she used to be. It’s a tragic and difficult situation.

This book just kept me engaged from the first page to the last. It’s a heartbreaking story, but full of love and compassion.

Beautifully written and sensitively handled, this is a book that will stay with you for a long time after you’ve finished it.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
