Product description

From the Inside Flap

Elijah, seven years old, is covered in scars and has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties - and that being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son. Elijah's birth mother Deborah loves her son like the world has never known. Elijah thinks it's his fault they can't be together. Each of them faces more challenges than they could have dreamed of, but just as Elijah starts to settle in, a shocking event rocks their fragile peace and the result is devastating.

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

When Nikki adopts seven-year-old Elijah, she knows there'll be problems. His background is troubled and he has a history of disruptive behaviour. But Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to cope - and that her being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son. Elijah's birth mother is ever present in their lives, and her love for her son is a constant reminder to Nikki of something that she can never be part of. Then, just as Elijah starts to settle in, an unforeseen event rocks their fragile peace, with devastating consequences.

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
