Grace Graham goes to Tennessee to help her sister care for their father who is having surgery. Soon after they arrive, Grace's son Dylan becomes sick. She finds out that he may have put the lives of about 6 other children in danger - all because she chose not to have him vaccinated.
As Grace is struggling with guilt over putting other children's lives at risk, she is also dealing with issues of anger towards her father, whose years of smoking led to her mother's death.
She is also still dealing with hurt over the way her relationship with her fiance ended. Will she be able to forgive her father and ex-fiance? And will she be able to forgive herself for decisions she made that put lives at risk?
This book was a bit slow at the beginning, but once I got through the first couple chapters I couldn't put it down! I had heard about the vaccination-autism link before, but didn't know about the different sides to the issue. The book covers both sides of the issue with grace and understanding. I definitely want to read up on this more so I can be more knowledgeable when I have kids of my own. I also liked the way the author wove the forgiveness issue throughout the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who not only loves a good story, but one that touches on current issues of the day.
