    Irene Hurt seems to have the perfect life: a lovely home, a handsome husband (Bruce) and an adorable son (Scottie). It may seem a little cheesy but it certainly provides a telling counterpoint to what’s to come. (As a Brit, the only part of this perfect life I found hard to understand was having a shooting range in a barn in your garden, and a culture where it is acceptable – and commonplace – for private individuals to own handguns.)When Scottie is caught up in a shooting on his school bu [...]

    The synopsis of this novel portrays a gripping story of one mother's fight to keep her son alive, no matter what she has to sacrifice. It is exquisitely composed as a tribute to a school shooting. A poignant page turning novel that is a dynamic tear jerker. A riveting plot with compelling character's that are pragmatic. I volunteerly reviewed an advanced reading copy of this book.

    Amazing read from start to finish. Very emotional but worth the tears.The main protagonist, Irene, has everything in life, the perfect life, the perfect husband, and son. One day, her son gets shot in a school shooting and ends up at the hospital in a coma. The next weeks, we follow Irene as she struggles with her faith, grief and to keep her son alive. As the story unfolds, we also learn that her husband may have had something to do with the son's killer.I really liked how the chapter headings, [...]

    The book is about something so unbearable I wasn't sure I wanted to read it at first, but I'm glad I did. It's thought provoking, tear jerking and a real page turner - though it's mostly taking place in one location over a short period of time, it feels very action packed. A story about forgiveness and understanding, and a tribute to (a mothers) love and to hope.

    This book is a full on tear jerker. I can't tell you how many time I had to put it down, not because it was bad but because I need a break so my eyes wouldn't look like I was up night crying.In this story you see the side of the story that is often left untold by the media. It's more than what meets the eye. You see how people prepare themselves for grief. How families all handle a painful event differently. I realized from reading this that there is no wrong or right wait to deal with pain. Eve [...]

    Love is the one thing that we all try to hold onto, but it’s not always as simple as people like to think it is.

With this book, it tells us a story of what it’s like when all you have unlimited amount of love for your child, a whole lot of hoping and a lot of strength. Some people take life for granted, others don’t read between the lines and for others the unimaginable. Charlotte Roth writes [...]

    Wow!I read this book a few days after a woman I call my 2nd mama was rushed to the er and then chemically induced into a coma for 3 days. I found the story to be so incredibly accurate on all of the different emotions, technology, and medically terms thrown at us all at once. It was eerily accurate on the journey of keeping hope when it seems you are the only one. I can't rank this book high enough! Thank you for writing this novel

    The realization that things can take a turn in the blink of an eye. For any parent, we picture the worst case scenario as our children go through their days , like they are untouchable.

It's a story of a mother's unconditional love for her son and the unending bond they share, even in near-death.Each character has his or her own sub story to tell in this book, and I love that. It helped me connect to each one and feel his or her pain as well, which created compassion in my heart for these p [...]

    I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. I thought this book would be more about the events surrounding the school shooting, however, the main plot really focused on the mother and father coping with the injuries of their child, left in a coma after the shooting. I could definitely relate as I've spent weeks on end on multiple occasions at the bedside of my own daughter in the hospital fighting for her life. The author very accurately portrayed that experience and the emotions t [...]
