TO KNOW YOU
To Know You is a story of what a family goes through when one of their own needs a liver transplant — it is heart-wrenching and heartwarming at the same time. The characters have all the emotions one would have when dealing with all the doctors, waiting lists, tests, etc. Ethridge and Mackel merge their talents into one amazing novel.
Julia Whittaker must look to her past to make sure her son can have a future. He needs a liver transplant and she and her husband are the wrong blood type. Her last hope is her two daughters — the children she gave up for adoption. Julia not only must find them and plea for them to get tested as a match, but she also has to tell them each who their father is. Neither one of those men is going to be thrilled when presented with a daughter they didn’t know they had. Will decisions be made in time or will Julia lose yet another child?
