Publisher's Summary

All children's book illustrator Claire Turner ever wanted was to be a mother. After six years of trying to conceive, she and her husband, Josh, have finally accepted that she will never be pregnant with a child of their own.

Yet once they give up hope, the couple gets the miracle they've been waiting for. For the first few months of her pregnancy, Claire and Josh are living on cloud nine. But when she begins to experience debilitating headaches, blurred vision, and even fainting spells, the soon-to-be mother goes to the doctor and receives a terrifying diagnosis. Since any treatment could put their unborn baby's life at risk, the Turners must carefully weigh their limited options. And as her symptoms worsen, Claire will have to make an impossible decision: Save her own life, or save her child's?

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Steena Holmes brings us an unforgettable story of one woman's courage and love.

Not a fan. Won't read the sequel.

About a weak little woman who must be carried everywhere by her big strong adoring husband. Not relatable for me. I think women are stronger than this under most any circumstances including cancer. Just not my style. Left me feeling disappointed that I finished it out of curiosity.

Overly sentimental and unrealistic

I found the story to be maudlin and contrived. Reader does an okay job of voicing it, but my gag reflex prevented me from enjoying it, over all. I prefer a writer who is more spare and concise with her/his words

Riveting

Loved the story. It had a nice flow even with some redundancy. The reader had a good vocal repertoire. Would read this author again.

Slow and predictable

The overall story is really good. I like the well developed characters. The audio performance was really good. This book is well written, but my problem is that it’s fairly obvious what the problem is. The entire story drags. The plot is very predictable, and I was waiting for the resolution before the problem was presented. The tension between the main couple seemed forced after everything they’d been through before, but eventually made mor

Saving Abby

I listened to this book while traveling long hours on the road. It made the time go by so fast. My only complaint is that it’s hard to drive with watery eyes. 😉.

Beautiful and Touching Story

I really enjoyed this book. The beginning kind of threw me in a loop but speculations began shortly after I started reading the first chapter. It was such a touching story and I kind of felt like I was a part of the book due to something similar having taken place in my life personally. I recommend this book because it will have you imagining, smiling, and crying at the same time.
