One Last Wish by Ella Harper






Rosie and Nate had the perfect relationship. But they struggled to cope with the devastating news their daughter Emmie has incurable cancer. It feels like their world – and their relationship – has come crashing down. 
They must do everything to support their little girl, but can they stop their marriage falling apart? 
Unbeknownst to her parents, Emmie is on a mission. She is determined to make them see what brought them together in the first place – and make them fall in love all over again. 


Emmie was only five years old when her parents were told that all the chemotherapy and radiotherapy that their child had been through hadn't worked and she now had an inoperable brain tumour.
Emmie is now eleven years old and every minute of everyday her parents are expecting the phone call that says the brain tumour has grown enough to end their daughter's life. Emmie is worried too,she's worried that her parents will not stay together after she is gone. Emmie is going to do something about it.
Yes,this book is very sad and I cried at the end. This book probably mirrors what lots of parents are going through right now. 
The story is told  through the voices of Rosie,Nate and Emmie. Rosie feels she can't speak to Nate anymore and Nate feels the same about her. There are so many misunderstandings between them that make matters worse and I wanted to get them both together and bang their heads. 
Rosie has a lovely twin sister, Lily, who is everything a sister should be and it's a pleasant change to read about sisters who get on with each other. Nate is a policeman and he confides in his partner Gill who is so supportive to him.
Along the way we meet Dr Tom who is Emmie's new counsellor. She feels at ease with him from the beginning and he is able to help her in her quest.
I don't want to tell you anything more about this story apart from advising you to have a box of tissues at the ready. I can see this book being made into a film. Although it's a sad subject it has a feel good factor about it. The way Emmie dealt with her diagnosis and how lovely the other characters in the book were. They were all people you would welcome into your life.
