Summary
How far would you go to get your daughter back? It's been twelve months since Alison Miller-Juul's world fell apart when her six-year-old daughter, Amalie, drowned. Twelve months of sympathy cards, grief counselling and gritting her teeth, but it's still only the vodka and pills that seem to work. Alison no longer cares about anything. She can't smile at her step-son, she can't answer her friends' texts, she can't even look at her husband. All Alison wants is Amalie back. Then she learns that the girl who received her daughter's heart lives just a few streets away. Unlike Amalie, this girl has a future. She's alive because Amalie's heart beats for her. And in the darkest recess of Alison's brain, an idea begins to take shape..
Summary
Succumbing to despair during a bleak Norwegian winter in the aftermath of her daughter's drowning death, Alison forges a controversial and increasingly obsessive bond with the struggling family of her daughter's heart recipient
