Married couple Rachel and James, joyously welcome becoming parents. Being a mother fills Rachel’s life. Baby Emily is Rachel’s entire world, and she could not be happier.
Until heartbreak hits when Emily is diagnosed with an autoimmune disease so rare, that even the most expert specialists cannot help her. Spending every moment by Emily’s side, Rachel helplessly watches as her baby, now in a coma, slips further in the grip of the merciless disease.
Desperate with fear of losing her precious daughter, Rachel searches for treatments that will help her daughter. When Rachel finds a way to possibly save her daughter, she does not let anything or anyone get in her way. Not even James. That is when Rachel turns to Eva, James’ new wife, for help.
An unlikely kinship develops between these two very different, but very strong women as they search for a way to seek treatment for Emily brings them together.
Kate Hewitt deftly captures a reader’s attention by engaging your heart’s core and ensnaring emotions there, until you are racing to the end of the book. Genuine characters, authentic storyline and excellent writing.
A Hope for Emily is a gut-wrenching, heart-hitting, emotionally consuming read. Highly recommended.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for Kate Hewitt’s read of, A Hope for Emily.
