Publisher's Summary

They say if you love someone, you have to let them go. But what they are your child?

All Sarah McIntyre has ever wanted was a loving, happy family. So when her husband JP announces on Christmas Day that he is leaving her and their two children, nine-year-old Harry and four-year-old Robyn, Sarah is left reeling.

But things are set to get worse when Robyn is diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. 

Can JP and Sarah unite to fight their biggest battle yet? Or will they be on opposing sides once again? 

With the couple at loggerheads and with Robyn's condition deteriorating day-by-day, precious time is running out and JP is getting desperate....

The Last Days of Us is a tender story of hope and forgiveness that asks the question how far would you go to save your child?

Caroline Fnnerty has done it again

Truly amazing writing. Except for the husband cheating on his wife this story could have been written about my family. In just a few months it will be 44 years since our own 3 year old baby boy died from leukemia.
The way we were given the diagnosis was almost exactly the it happened in this book.
She expressed our feelings nearly to a T.
If you have experienced the loss of a child this can bring back memories and emotions you never expected to return.
For anyone who reads it it will more than likely bring more than a few tears.
I recommend you read it and see for yourself what an amazing book it is.
To Caroline Finnerty job well done.

Heart breaking

Absolutely spell binding, heart reaching, and a beautiful tale of such huge devastation. Especially liked all the views of the brother in his own words. Puts things into prospective for us all! A joy to read !!
