Publisher's Summary

A mother always knows best. Doesn't she?

For single mother Kate O'Hara, there was no decision to make. Her daughter, Rosie, is one of a small percentage of children with a disorder that prevents them from being immunized. All Kate can do is hope that herd immunity keeps the disease at bay and her little girl safe.

For Madeleine Cooper, vaccinations were a leap of faith she wasn't prepared to take. Which was why, following much soul searching, she and her husband declined controversial measles shots for their daughter, Clara. All she can do is pray that it was the right decision and, if her little girl becomes sick, she gets through it unscathed.

But when both girls wind up in the same elementary school class, telltale red spots appear on Clara Cooper's chest and on Rosie's a few days after. When one child recovers as the other's health becomes more critical, the two mothers find themselves across a very deep divide - when all they wanted was to keep their children safe.

Lost speed towards the end...

Actually, even with slow places & being somewhat repetitious.. This book was still keeping my attention as I both read & listened to it. The ending though was less than satisfying, seeming to fizzle rather than spark. Perhaps that was the intention, to show that the author thinks there are no winners in this debate. Would only recommend to someone really interested in the subject.
