Wow! So much sadness, so much joy. Ms Snelling captured the all-consuming, overwhelming, life-changing grief of losing a child so well - almost as though she experienced it first hand to be able to express such depths of despair so completely. I was a little frustrated with Nora, perhaps because I'm a "soldier on for the good of the family despite my own grief" sort of person, and Nora was clearly not! I thoroughly enjoyed the Jenna side of the story, especially how quickly her thoughts turned to the grief of the donor family and how she let their loss temper her ecstasy over the hope a new heart for her daughter could bring. She was so sensitive and the transformation from nursemum to just Mum was a joy to watch. This book gives a very thought provoking look at both sides of organ donation, something which every family needs to make up their own minds about without any judgement or criticism. The story contains neither judgement or pressure to decide either way and I recommend it, although it should probably be accompanied by a box of tissues!
