'There is warmth and heart aplenty in this delicately told story' Daily Mail

Moving back in with her dad was not part of Kate's plan. Blindsided by her husband's affair and the break-up of their family, Kate must balance the needs of three very different children - solo.

Seven-year-old Bobby is having meltdowns at school. Eighteen-year-old Luke vows that he'll never speak to his father again. And sweet middle-child Jess, always the peacemaker, is just trying to cheer everyone up as best she can.

But when Jess is diagnosed with cancer, Kate's resilience is put to the ultimate test. She knows she has to put aside her own hurt and do what is best for her little girl. But maybe doing the right thing means doing the unthinkable?
