At the opening of this moving and ultimately hopeful story, Sarah’s mother is ill. During her treatment she seems to get sicker and sicker. She’s often in the hospital, and at home she needs to rest. Sarah’s world is turned upside down. After a long time, her mother starts feeling better. But Sarah still has one more difficult discovery to make: Her mom can’t promise that she’ll never get sick again. She can make other promises, though, and those special promises are enough for now. Ages 4-7
