Dustin Reviews: ‘Simon’s Choice’ by Charlotte Castle

'Simon's Choice' by Charlotte Castle“But Daddy, who will live with me in heaven?”

Doctor Simon Bailey has everything a man could ever want.

Then his beautiful daughter is diagnosed with Leukemia.

He can almost accept her impending death.

He can almost accept the fact that he will have to live without her

But he cannot stand the thought of his little girl having to face death alone.

He answers her innocent question in a moment of desperation, testing his marriage, his professional judgment and his sanity to the limit.

As cracks form in Simon’s previously perfect family, we wonder, as do his loved ones … will he really make the ultimate sacrifice?

Combining poignant moments of both humour and pain, ‘Simon’s Choice’ is a penetrating account of parenthood at the sharp-end.

Simon’s Choice, what can I say? The story was a roller coaster of emotions with characters (for the most part) were engaging and believable. Simon openly tells his story as he deals with a terminally ill daughter and how that plays into his changing life. Charlotte Castle has written a moving and touching story that anyone who has had to deal with the loss of a loved one can relate.
