There he is, my baby boy. His eyes are closed, his tiny rosebud mouth is pursed in sleep. My eyes well up as I catch a whiff of his newborn skin and I swallow back a wave of emotion. I should feel happy, I should feel grateful, but all I can think about is everything I just lost…
 
It’s a miracle when Katherine’s baby boy is born healthy. But his twin sister doesn’t survive, and when Katherine is told she can’t have any more children the loss is almost too much for her to bear.
 
Katherine always saw herself having a big family: she remembers how the loneliness of being an only child used to overwhelm her, and she is desperate to adopt a sibling for her son.
 
But her husband Davis won’t agree. He worries that Katherine will struggle when the new baby arrives. What if growing their family only adds to the grief she feels over losing her little girl? What if this breaks their marriage apart?
 
And Katherine is forced to make a choice. Give up the second child she has always dreamed of or risk losing the family she already has?
 
An unforgettable and heart-wrenching page-turner about fighting for those we love. Readers of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will remember this story forever.
 What readers are saying about My Only Child:
‘OH MY GOD! I opened [the book] and my heart already started breaking. It broke more and more until I found myself with one million pieces of it… The book made my heart bleed, my eyes well up and my bin fill up with wet tissues, but I ended with my heart full of warmth, my eyes crying happy tears and a big smile on my face. An amazingly beautiful story that I could not put down.’ B is for Book Review, 5 stars
 
‘One of the best books I've read in a while… I read this one in a day. An emotional read that left me crying at the end… Can a mother ever get over the loss of a baby, and do we even want to? A powerful book that will stay with you long after you read the last page.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
 
‘Heartbreaking and equally heart-warming… Vickery is fast becoming a favourite of mine and this book is another knock out of the park for me… leads me through a rollercoaster of emotions… there was not a dry eye in the house as I read this book.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
‘Wow, this author just gets better and better, what a fantastic book, it got me involved in the storyline from the very first page and kept me there until the very last page. I just loved every word in this emotional story.’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars
 
‘So special… Sam Vickery did an amazing job writing this story… shows us the difficulty of moving forward, figuring out what to do, and really how to just make it through a day. It is written with understanding, compassion, and so much feeling…
