Spurred on by ‘never saying goodbye’, Amelia dreams she can bring her son Jacob back after experiencing recurrent miscarriages, Amelia swaps Vogue for medical journals, survives treatments and trials, and stirs people emotionally with her spirit, determination and her tenacity to never take no for an answer.
Jacob, her lost child, sees everything from the afterlife, yet no matter how loud he shouts his words are silenced and he can never be heard. He sacrifices his mother’s touch for the one thing he can save…
