The Night Olivia Fell by Christine McDonald

A search for the truth. A lifetime of lies.

In the small hours of the morning, Abi Knight is startled awake by the phone call no mother ever wants to get: her teenage daughter Olivia has fallen off a bridge. Not only is Olivia brain dead, she’s pregnant and must remain on life support to keep her baby alive. And then Abi sees the angry bruises circling Olivia’s wrists.

When the police unexpectedly rule Olivia’s fall an accident, Abi decides to find out what really happened that night. Heartbroken and grieving, she unravels the threads of her daughter’s life. Was Olivia’s fall an accident? Or something far more sinister?

My Thoughts
I don't know where to begin...this story was amazing.  It takes a lot to make me cry and this one did it for me. 
Without giving too much away, you must read it to understand it. 
I have a teenage daughter in a "serious" relationship and if this was ever the situation I found myself in, I don't know what I would do.
This story will tug at your heartstrings and have you really thinking and understanding teenagers and what goes through their minds.
The story revolves around the night Olivia fell and what events bring her to that very moment. You will be devastated for this mother but you will also see the power of healing and acceptance.  It is a dark tale with a true light at the end of the tunnel.

Drink Selection
I need to pair a comfort drink with this read, a hot apple cider for this time of year.
