“Kim Gemmell’s vivid descriptions put you right in the midst of the unfolding events as her critically ill baby—born with a rare heart defect—fights for his life. Through the pages of her journal that she kept after Avery was born, you catch a glimpse of a mother’s heart. Sometimes the words are heart wrenching, always honest, and yet, through it all, she holds onto hope for the future of her son, even when doctors give her no reason to hope. Her baby is a fighter, and so is she. The book is a real page-turner.”
