This was probably the oddest book I have ever read. The description was quite catching but the story didn't live up to it. The chapters skip around and the sections within each chapter don't seem to mesh well. After every new section I was left going 'Uh...what?' Nothing is described in the detail which you totally need. I had to google the disease that is mentioned a million times because nothing except 'myoclonic jerk' was ever said about it. The entire story is laid out in just a few chapters so the last 3/4 of the book just seem to be filler. And it just doesn't make much sense-- why the character would keep things a secret. Why she wouldn't deal with the issue of Eric Blair instead of letting things build (and not even a good build because it just fizzled out 3/4 of the way through and that character was pretty much gone). I was pretty disappointed.

I have two children with Batten disease. This novel offended me at my core. First of all the premise is so far fetched it is ridiculous. Her husband And the man who rape her were carriers of this rare disease. She suspected the child had Batten but did not get him tested. A mother making the choice to not let her child suffer this horrible illness would have had to be sure. She spoke of her brother who died of Batten as a yellow oleander toxic to her family, yet these children have some years of health and normal life before it is taken from them. She speaks of wanting to kill her brother to release him when he began to suffer yet as a Mother doesn't eve give her own child a few years to live. She doesn't tell her husband any of her suspicions even after describing the incredibly close relationship they have, loving him because he is opposite of her own father who left his family.
My children are 20 and 21. They are sick but have brought joy to my husband and I as well as many others.
Finally, the to the author...the horrible man Eric is described as having Botoxed lips. You can't botox lips.

Many reviews already point out the negatives of this story and I agree with them all. BUT, I still enjoyed the book because it did provoke some ethical and moral considerations which made the story interesting. The writing itself is just average; it was a bit disjointed and too explanatory. A good story tells itself, it doesn't need to be explained to you.

This plot was very unbelievable. The characters were not well developed, and the emotions of the lead character made no sense at all. I do it recommend this book at all.

How many holes can a plot have? Well there are too many to count in this novel. Let's start with the fact that when on a business trip the heroine wakes up to finds a co-worker in her hotel room uninvited. He gives her a tablet to help with her migraine. This 46 year old supposedly intelligent woman takes it and doesn't wonder why it's not wrapped in anything or in a bottle so she can see it's "legitimate". She then shows him out, dead locks her door and takes the pill and guess what -- it's a roofie and she's raped. But how the perpetrator came back into the room through the dead lock is never explained.

Uncertain something happened she does nothing. But then the nightmares come and she receives an email from the same co-worker about the roofie but she tell no one and does nothing! Nor does she do anything about the fact that this co-worker shows a nude lewd image of her to everyone in the office! And this is despite the fact that she is dealing with a sexual harrassment case at work. Our heroine says nothing -- not even to the husband she adores. She then finds she is pregnant and desperate to have a child she is delighted not caring if it is the result of the rape. However, the protagonist is the carrier of a rare disease that kills and knowing this she has "clean eggs" that have been checked and put to one side to impregnate her. Yet she allows herself to get pregnant naturally and does no tests to see if the baby is infected, and of course it is so she kills it rather than let it suffer the pain the disease will inflict. And she does all this without going to the doctor to check if this deadly disease is what the baby is really suffering from or of telling the husband whom she not only adores but also leans on.

I read this book in less than 3hours. Captivating from the start especially for me as a nurse and mother myself.

I can't say I liked this book. It was fairly horrific. But I had to give it 4-stars because it was chilling, surprisingly well written and kept me reading until the end. I finished it in one sitting.

Some of the plot points were a little unbelievable if taken out of context, but the author made me believe it. The book pulled me into the time and place and I could see why the characters did what they did. The first part of the book was taut and gripping. When she was trying to decide what to do, my heart was pounding. The last part was truly heartbreaking.

Did she just see what she desperately wanted to see? To see her nightmares come true? Was it all in her head? I kept asking myself these questions throughout the book and by the end I had no answers. Just this sad, miserable and probably cautionary tale of a desperate woman trying so much to do what's best for her son without stopping for a second to just think. It really got to me, how we get so wrapped up in a thought and sometimes it's easier to get swept along in it rather than let go. It's scary how easily that can happen; perhaps not on such a grand scale as in this book. But we're all capable of drastic action if we truly believe in its rightness.

Don't read it if you're looking for something light and fluffy. This book will likely stay with you long after you finish it.
