Goodreads: From bestselling author Diane Chamberlain comes an irresistible new novel.
When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970 and there seems to be little that can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that perhaps there is. Hunter appeared in their lives just a few years before—and his appearance was as mysterious as his past. With no family, no friends, and a background shrouded in secrets, Hunter embraced the Sears family and never looked back.
Now, Hunter is telling her that something can be done about her baby’s heart. Something that will shatter every preconceived notion that Caroline has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage that Caroline never knew existed. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on Caroline’s part.
And all for the love of her unborn child.
A rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking novel about one mother’s quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a novel that you will never forget.

Ope’s Opinion: I think for most mystery readers this may be a 4 or 5 chair. I am more of a who-done-it reader, so this had a bit more graphic details of what happened at the murder scene to the victims then I prefer. The intensity was there through the whole book, the story felt realistic and the characters were ones you really cared about.
The beginning was a little hard to understand – I felt like I walked into a part two of a series, but this was part one -( I should have read the prequel ). From page one the relationships were already developed and it was written as if I already knew the relationships between people. After a couple of chapters I understood who was who.
Although this is a series, I felt it ended well and wrapped things up for this book. Some of the relationships were left open, but I felt satisfied with the ending.

Chevy Stevens targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her—and ratchets up the stakes even more in a novel that explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.
Ope’s Opinion: WARNING: Do not start this book unless you have ample time to continue reading one more chapter, one more, one more….. It is amazingly intense!!! On page one you be absorbed in the story. During certain portions ( no spoilers ) you may need to remind yourself to breathe. When you think the story is done, hold on… it isn’t – no details – just read to the end! My only negative thought of this book is that it wrapped up a little too fast, a little too neatly, a little too easily. I would still recommend this book.
