Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Beloved "Sherlock" actor Louise Brealey's masterful narration captures the intense emotions of Pip, a mother who is facing the impending death of her young son. Matt Reeves gives a powerful voice to Max, the conflicted father who is desperately fighting for the child's life. Nathalie Armin delivers the professional concern and personal beliefs of the doctor caught between two parents who must make a difficult decision. The audiobook begins with the loss of the child and its struggles before splitting into two separate futures: one told by Pip and one by Max. Brealey and Reeves capture agonizing loss, confusion, and the difficult choices of a couple making the hardest decisions of their lives.The powerful performances of the three narrators make it hard to believe the characters are not real people.
