One mother’s life will change in the blink of an eye—and there’s no going back.
Elaine’s worst fears become reality when her beloved son Jakob is diagnosed with cancer. She needs to find a bone marrow donor, and time is running out. But while awaiting test results to see if she’s a possible match, Elaine learns a shocking truth about her son; a truth that threatens to send her back to the pills that almost destroyed her life once before; a truth that pushes her already fragile mental state to the breaking point.
Even as the family faces this new crisis, a ghost from Elaine’s past emerges to jeopardize everything she’s built. But is the threat real, or is it all in her mind? Elaine needs to stay strong for her son, but as her whole reality continues to unravel, she can’t trust anyone—not even herself. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Ellie is scared. Her son was abducted years ago and returned months later. Even though they have moved on, she is still frightened. Now her son is sick and her life as she knows it comes crashing down on all sides. What is a mother to do when the truth can hurt everyone around? This story was very well written. I feel like I missed a bit because I did not read the first book in this series, but overall it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. This story was a mix of thriller and drama. In the center of the tale is a sick little boy. It broke my heart for this family. Secrets start coming to light all around Ellie and powerless to stop her whole world from changing. What is a mother to do? The other characters were real and easy to like. This story was crazy, but it was real at the same time. How many times do these types of things happen in real life? It makes a person think. Overall, this is a great story if you want a good read that's hard to put down. And the ending was awesome.
