Synopsis

When giving life means risking life . . .
For more than six years Seattle architect Caroline Wynn and her attorney husband, Jeffrey, have been trying to have a baby. Now, finally, Caroline is pregnant. Both Caroline and Jeffrey are thrilled. And, wanting a lasting memory of the joy she's feeling, Caroline decides to keep a pregnancy journal, writing to the baby she already loves.

Caroline's pregnancy coincides with the trial of Jeffrey's career, the murder of a pregnant woman by her celebrity finace. For father-to-be Jeffrey,a man murdering his unborn child is as incomprehensible as it is painful.

But there are other dangers for pregnant women, perils that lurk in silence amid the joy. For Caroline, such perils are medical. Her pregnancy is placing her health -- and even her life -- in jeopardy. But when it comes to a choice between her own life and her baby's, there's never, for Caroline, the slightest doubt.

It's a decision of love -- for the baby she cherishes and the husband who loves Caroline more than she believed any man ever could. A man who deserves a chance to become the father he was meant to be.

In this poignant book, this story of love and hope and courage and dreams, Katherine Stone reveals the true strength of a woman.
