Vivien and her daughter, Tia, share an extraordinary bond that transcends biology, illustrating the profound power of motherhood and the essence of family. But when Vivien's vengeful ex-partner, Shona, sets in motion an unrelenting endeavor to dismantle their lives, their unbreakable bond faces its ultimate test.

Stripped of her legal recognition as a parent and armed with nothing but sheer determination, Vivien courageously recounts her remarkable journey through uncharted legal terrain to reclaim custody of her daughter, fighting not only for her own rights but also for the preservation of a relationship that defines her very existence. In this gripping memoir, Vivien highlights the emotional turmoil of love and loss and uncovers the profound complexities of a legal battle that challenges society's understanding of parenthood, shining a light on the unique hurdles faced by non-biological and LGBTQI+ parents.
