“But Daddy, who will live with me in heaven?”
Doctor Simon Bailey has everything a man could ever want.
Then his beautiful daughter is diagnosed with Leukemia.
He can almost accept her impending death.
He can almost accept the fact that he will have to live without her.
But he cannot stand the thought of his little girl having to face death alone.
He answers her innocent question in a moment of desperation, testing his marriage, his professional judgment and his sanity to the limit.
As cracks form in Simon’s previously perfect family, we wonder, as do his loved ones … will he really make the ultimate sacrifice?
Combining poignant moments of both humor and pain, ‘Simon’s Choice’ is a penetrating account of parenthood at the sharp-end.
The daughter of a successful novelist, Charlotte Castle considers herself ‘chronically unemployable’ and admits to being astounded that her book has had such a positive reception.
