It’s Livia’s 40th birthday and she’s having the party of a lifetime to make up for the wedding she never had. Everyone she loves will be there except her daughter Marnie, who’s studying abroad. But although Livia loves Marnie, she’s secretly glad she won’t be at the party. She needs to tell Adam something about their daughter but she’s waiting until the party is over so they can have this last happy time together.
Adam wants everything to be perfect for Livia so he’s secretly arranged for Marnie to come home and surprise her on her birthday. During the day, he hears some terrible news. He needs to tell Livia, because how can the party go on? But she’s so happy, so excited – and the guests are about to arrive.
The Dilemma – how far would you go to give someone you love a last few hours of happiness?
Another really good read from this author, it had everything I needed for me to be gripped from the first chapter. The chapters alternate between husband and wife Livia and Adam. When tradegy strikes Adam has to make a decision wether or not to tell his wife, in one hand i kind of see why he made that decision but in the other hand I wish he would of told her sooner, I would of wanted to know sooner if I was in that situation. An awful situation to be in and I did feel for Adam, what a devastating effect it has on the family. In times like this remember family’s should stick together. What would you have done with this dilemma?
