In this very personal journal, Lisa Brodie-Gow describes her painful and at times terrifying experience of giving birth to and caring for her premature baby, Jack, who was born with a brain haemorrhage and chronic lung disease, both of which threatened to desecrate his tiny body and cut short his fight for life. Faced with the possibility of losing her son, Lisa faced an uphill battle against depression and despair, unable to grasp the injustice of so much suffering being inflicted upon a tiny baby.

The medical teams involved in Jack's care worked tirelessly to bring Jack through the challenges he faced during his first months of life, before he was even due to be a full-term baby. A detailed account of both the medical and emotional journey of a mother and her son, the conclusion is a heart-warming affirmation of the healing powers of unerring hope and unconditional love.

Lisa Brodie-Gow

Lisa Brodie-Gow is a primary school teacher and private tutor currently living in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire with her husband, Richard, and their two children, Jack and Amelia. Lisa has always enjoyed writing and kept a diary of events during the first four months of Jack's life to give her a way of documenting her thoughts and feelings during this terrible time. This diary then evolved and became this book, written in support of the wonderful NHS and to offer hope and comfort to other families that may be going through similar ordeals with children in hospital.
