One Last Wish by Ella Harper
How would you cope if your child became terminally ill?
Rosie and Nate had the perfect relationship. But they struggled to cope with the devastating news their daughter Emmie has incurable cancer. It feels like their world – and their relationship – has come crashing down.
They must do everything to support their little girl, but can they stop their marriage falling apart?
Unbeknownst to her parents, Emmie is on a mission. She is determined to make them see what brought them together in the first place – and make them fall in love all over again.
Gruelling. That's all I can say. But I couldn't stop reading, even though it tugged at my heartstrings and made me gather my own daughter to me and hold her tight, and I thanked my lucky stars that she is healthy.
The worst thing that can happen to a parent is the death of a child. Whether suddenly, or long and drawn out, whether by accident or intent or disease, it really doesn’t matter, but Ms XXX skilfully illustrates the issues of relatively imminent death from a terminal tumour, and how the child and the parents cope (or don’t cope) in the face of such catastrophic events.
God, I felt for them! I really did. It broke my heart and made me cry (I must stop reading these type of books – I’m becoming an emotional mess!), and I have a feeling this book will stay with me for a long time.
