"It was a clever idea to combine family recipes with a short story and it adds a little something extra to this short story. I have decided to keep it on my Kindle even though I've read it twice now for that very reason! It's about a young woman who is pregnant with her first child but has a heart condition. She's being advised by almost everyone around her to terminate the pregnancy and get her heart fixed but she's already bonded with the child and wants to carry the baby to full term, endangering her own life in the process. It truly is a heartbreaking story and as a mother with a young child I felt so sad reading this. I'm actually feeling tears in my eyes remembering the book as I'm writing. It's so well written and every mother who reads it will know exactly how Melina felt. Highly recommended."
