Publisher's Summary

Here is a love story, a modern nightmare, and an honest and incisive portrayal of a woman who honours her husband's wish to die and finds herself in the dock for murder.
When Deborah reluctantly helps her beloved husband Neil end his life and conceals the truth, she is charged with murder. As the trial unfolds and her daughter Sophie testifies against her, Deborah, still reeling with grief, fights to defend her actions. Twelve jurors hold her fate in their hands; if found guilty she will serve a life sentence.
Deborah seeks solace in her memories of Neil and the love they shared. An ordinary woman caught up in an extraordinary situation. A book that begs the question: what would you do?

I loved this audio book. The story was partly the story of an ordinary life which the diagnosis of the husband's illness had turned upside down and partly a courtroom drama; both were cleverly handled. The characters and the relationships were very realistic and fully developed. The narration suited the book perfectly; it has a matter of fact tone which fitted well with the main character. I couldn't put it down and it really is a thought-provoking story.
