This book, filled to the brim with medical terminology and their respective explanations, was one of few that I have read without putting down in the past few months. As Macia struggles to maintain her identity in her marriage to her controlling husband and battles her son's liver disease simultaneously, she learns a lot about herself, and a lot about what love truly is. As little Max's disease progresses, she must make a decision no mother should ever have to make. World renowned pathologist Stephen A. Geller wrote an amazing first novel with pushed me further and further over the edge. Throughout Macia and Max's journey I remained on the edge of my seat praying that everything would be all right in the end. Geller wrote a fabulous book and I highly suggest anybody who wants to read a good book reads this one.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 148176232X, Hardcover)

At the prime of her life, accomplished pianist Marcia Kleinman is forced to make some heart-wrenching decisions. She has a difficult husband, a difficult mother and her little boy, Max, has been diagnosed with a rare liver disease that will likely require a liver transplant. As Max’s health declines, Marcia is faced with challenges testing her spirit, her resolve and her sense of self. Will she donate a portion of her own liver to Max? Will her husband, Michael, support her efforts to save their son’s life or will his controlling instincts and fears get in the way? Will Barbara, her mother, be sympathetic and supportive or, as usual, critical? Marcia increasingly finds solace at her piano, searching for the ever-elusive heart of Beethoven’s Appassionata. Her music is her salvation as she rediscovers her strength and passion dealing with life-changing, and life-saving, decisions while her marriage crumbles and her son gets sicker and sicker.
