If you were offered a chance to cure your child’s disease, would you take it?
The Willows have been through a lot. Louise has devoted her life to caring for her disabled youngest daughter. Pete works abroad, almost never seeing his loved ones. Their eldest, Eliza, is burdened by all the secrets she’s trying to keep from her overloaded family.
Meanwhile, Patience observes the world while trapped in her own body. She laughs; she cries; she has opinions and knows what she wants. But those who love her most – and make every decision about her life – will never know.
Or will they? When the Willows are offered the opportunity for Patience to take part in a new gene therapy trial to cure her Rett syndrome, they face an impossible dilemma. Are the very real risks worth the chance of the reward, no matter how small?

Why (have I chosen to read it)?
I have seen this novel recommended on Twitter, and I enjoy a book with a strong human element.
While (I am reading it)
We’ve had some beautiful sunny days this week, so I’ve been out walking in the valley. Came across these cows enjoying the sunshine and some hay (or whatever cows eat when grass is not available). It is nice to see them out from their shed.
All the best, Emma of EmmabBooks.com
