"A beautifully drawn study of what is at risk when you lose control of your own life. Unique, gripping, and viscerally moving--this impressive debut novel heralds the arrival of an extremely talented writer."  --Jodi Picoult, New York Times --bestselling author of Leaving Time 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.
