Wonderful story! Losing a child to cancer is a tragedy. This is the story of two people who fell in love in college, got married and wanted children. Two miscarriages and along came Jack, an absolutely charming and delightful child. Sadly Jack has a malignent brain tumour. The story is told from the fathers point of view and is very well done. It is very honest and extremely heartbreaking. Every part of this book is believable and when reading it I could feel what the people in the book would be feeling. I would definately recommend this book.

Thanks to Harlequin Books and NetGalley for a digital ARC of this heartbreaking story. Reading about cancer is never easy and when you see children suffering it is even more difficult. In this story a young boy develops a brain tumor and the ways his treatment decisions and his death affect the relationship of his parents. The story is told from the POV of the father who is a computer genius. There are excerpts throughout that have no capitalization or punctuation. I found them distracting until I got to the end of the book. Some of the character interactions in the book seemed crude and unnecessary to the story.
