About the author:
The daughter of a successful novelist, Charlotte Castle considers herself 'chronically unemployable' and admits to being astounded that her book has had such a positive reception.
"To be honest, I started writing 'Simon's Choice' out of a mixture of genuine desire to explore the horror of losing a child and a fair amount of desire to get out of mopping the kitchen floor. That people want to read it is wonderful."
A school governor for her daughter's primary school and actively involved in her local 'Community Action Group', Charlotte juggles writing with cleaning up after a man whom she says is "completely unfamiliar with the term 'washing basket'", her cat and her two children.
How can a father ever let go?
"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.
