Publisher's Summary

She gave you everything. But what does she want in return?  

When Lizzie's daughter, Meg, is given a life-saving heart transplant, Lizzie feels hugely grateful to the nameless donor. Then, she receives a letter from the donor's mother, Karen, asking to meet, and it seems like the least she can do.  

But as soon as Karen is welcomed into their lives, Lizzie feels something isn't right. And before long, she can't help but worry that by inviting Karen in, she might have put Meg in danger....

amazing!!!

This bite sized book was so much fun!! I dont know how Mackintosh does it. she managed to pack SO MUCH into a 2.5 hour audio book.It was Amazing!! incredible to feel real emotions for characters in such a short book! she created a book with such a string level of suspense and excellent pacing. it was really unnerving and realistic. looooove the cliffhanger ending too!!

Brilliant

This has been one of those books you couldn't wait to listen too. The narrator did a great job and the story was gripping. Would make a great film. I recommend this book for sure. 👍

Gripping

I didn't realise at first how short this book was, but I I thoroughly enjoyed it. The book tells the story of a couple whose daughter has a heart condition and receives a heart from a teenage boy who dies in a bike accident. Or does she? I can't give the storyline away. The ending wraps it up nicely. Short but worth the credit.
