A stunning, compassionate examination of one of the most intricate ethical issues of our time, The Promise of Stardust, will stay with you, long after the last page has been read.
Very well written, poignant story about a neurosurgeon having to make an extremely difficult decision on saving the life of his unborn child after his wife is declared brain dead. It's been awhile since I've read a book that's had such a heartfelt effect on me. It made me really sit down and think about what if this happened to me? Priscille you made my heart ache, you made me laugh and cry. This book felt honest and true and that's what I love about it and this book will stay with me forever. I wish I could give it 10 stars! Thank you so very much.
