A mother always knows best. Doesn't she?
For single mum Kate O'Hara, there was no decision to make. Her daughter, Rosie, is one of a small percentage of Irish children with a disorder that prevents her from being vaccinated against measles. All Kate can do is hope that herd immunity keeps the disease at bay and her little girl safe.
For Madeleine Harrington, it was a leap of faith she wasn't prepared to take. Which is why she and her husband decline measles jabs for their daughter, Clara. All she can do is pray that it's the right decision and if her little girl becomes sick, she gets through it unscathed.
The two girls have just started primary school in the same class. And when one day tell-tale red spots appear on Clara Harrington's chest, and Rosie's a few days after, both mums fear the worst.... How can this be happening when all they wanted was to keep their children safe?
A stunning, addictive and powerful new book that explores every mother's worst fear and hardest decision from beloved Irish best-selling author Melissa Hill.

I first must say the narration isn't the best in this book. However, the story completely makes up for that. Once I started this book I just couldn't stop. there is twists and turns that you just never knew how it would end. its a difficult topic but handled well. I enjoyed this book.
