What do you owe to a child you let go? Geraldine, a widow in her sixties and about to marry again, has come a long way from being a fourteen-year- old giving a baby up for adoption.
Beth has endured a painful divorce and the death of her adoptive mother, and now faces kidney disease. A transplant means waiting indefinitely for a stranger to die – unless someone volunteers to be a living donor. Could the time be right to track down the birth family she knows nothing about? Biological mother and daughter finally meet, but is Beth driven by selfishness, and will Geraldine’s urge to help Beth as a potential donor jeopardise everything else in her life?
This thought-provoking novel explores the meaning of family, the nature of guilt and regret, and the conflicts raised by the miracles of modern medicine.
