Publisher's Summary

Caroline used to have it all: she was madly in love with her husband, Peter, and they worshiped their beautiful baby girl. But as Lily grows into a toddler, Caroline notices that her daughter seems to live and act with a disconnect, and soon the perfect future Caroline had envisioned, along with her marriage, begin to crumble. Now she and Peter are no longer lovers, they're plaintiffs in the throes of divorce while still struggling to care for Lily. After years of blame and overwhelming despair, Caroline's chance encounter with a stranger at University Hospital opens her eyes to the prospect of accepting new support, new loves, and new dreams.

From the acclaimed author of The Final Piece comes a story of a family broken and unable to cope with a daughter's disability. And a mother who finds that letting go of the life she imagined may be the only way to get to the life she was meant for.

    "love this book"

    This book shows that just because you have bumps in the road you can over come them with good people in your life and accepting the things you cannot change. Also a mother's love is like no others.

    Story
    "Lily was only a prop"

    A woman who has given birth to a child with cognitive developmental delays and her husband divorce because of the strain of the child on their marriage.The young woman only sees herself as the mother of handicapped child and my impression is that she resents the child. The interaction between the mother and Lily the child is always shown to be very sweet and caring but the relationship is never carried any further. When the mother strikes up the acquaintance of a man at the hospital where Lily is having physical therapy, the rest of the book goes into romance mode and is fairly predictable . it was enjoyable to read but Lily gets nothing out of the story except a happier mother.

    No. I just don't like this book.

    This book tells of the ups and downs of raising a child with special needs. The author gives you the pleasure to experience the love that a Mother has for her child. Thank you.

    "Lily Love"

    Lovely story. Poignant, romantic and joyful. I could feel Caroline's pain over her daughter. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yet another good read by Maggie Myers. Beautifully read by Kate Rudd. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Story
    "Beautiful."

    One of the loveliest stories I have come across via Audible.
    Not a good idea to listen to the ending whilst driving - very emotional.
    Excellently narrated - clear, articulate and characters well defined.
