Destined to be a book
club favorite, a heart-wrenching debut about two people who must decide how
much they’re willing to sacrifice for love
Mara Nichols is a successful lawyer, devoted wife, and
adoptive mother who has received a life-shattering diagnosis. Scott Coffman, a
middle school teacher, has been fostering an eight-year-old boy while the boy’s
mother serves a jail sentence. Scott and Mara both have five days left until
they must say good-bye to the ones they love the most.
Through their stories, Julie Lawson Timmer explores the
individual limits of human endurance and the power of relationships, and shows
that sometimes loving someone means holding on, and sometimes it means letting
go. Download and start listening now!
