Every year, Sarah writes a love-filled birthday letter to Izzy, her now seven-year-old daughter. And when she falls pregnant with her second child, she promises Izzy that when the new baby arrives, life will not change, only get better.
But then, when five months pregnant, Sarah collapses and her future, and that of her pregnancy, is in the hands of her husband and sister, who don’t agree about what treatment options the doctors offer, and the family fights begin.
Sinead Moriarty’s tales are always heart-warming (and sometimes heartbreaking) … Seven Letters is both – and thought-provoking, too. Penguin, R290
