A mother always knows best. Doesn't she?
What if your choice for your child could harm someone else's?
Every mother faces impossible choices. Vaccination is one of the hardest. For single mum Kate O'Hara, there was no decision to make. Her daughter Rosie is one of a small percentage of Irish children who can't be vaccinated against measles. All Kate can do is hope that her little girl is safe.
For mummy blogger Madeleine Cooper, it was a leap of faith she wasn't prepared to take when she and her husband declined controversial measles jabs for their daughter Clara. All she can do is pray that it's the right decision.
But when classmates Clara and Rosie both become sick will Kate pay for Madeleine's choice?
A stunning and addictive new book club read from beloved bestselling Irish author Melissa Hill that explores every mother's worst fear.
I give it - 4/5
My review - What a wonderful, gripping story.
A story about how far you would go to protect your child.
I feel like, everyone is the same once your child is born. You would do anything you could to protect them and this is what this book is about. This book also shows you that there are two sides to every story. This book shows about two women, who want to keep their daughters safe, and their story within it.
In this book we follow Kate and Madeline. Two mothers with two different stories and opinions. Both of them decide not to vaccinate their daughters for different reason, one for medical reasons and one because their husband read something online. But then, both of their daughters catch the measles and this is where the legal battle begins. We get POVs from both of these women and what is happening in their lives. I felt so sorry for Kate and Madeline made me angry sometimes.
This is a very controversial topic about people who refuse to vaccinate their children and this story really lets readers know the two sides to it. It is very emotional and is gripping from the beginning. I really enjoyed reading this and was emotionally invested from the first page. I can't recommend it enough.
