In Pia de Jong’s gorgeous memoir, the author and her husband learn that their newborn Charlotte has incurable leukemia. Instead of opting for high-risk, probably futile treatment, they bring the
baby back to their Amsterdam house and shower her with love. Faith healers and naysayers descend, but there are also friends and a never-give-up doctor by their side. Astonishingly, Charlotte blossoms rather than fades; she’s now a healthy teen. A ravishing reminder of life’s mysteries—and miracles.
