A love story, a modern nightmare and an honest and incisive portrayal of a woman who honours her husband's wish to die and finds herself in the dock for murder. When Deborah reluctantly helps her beloved husband Neil end his life and conceals the truth, she is charged with murder.

As the trial unfolds and her daughter Sophie testifies against her, Deborah, still reeling with grief, fights to defend her actions.

Twelve jurors hold her fate in their hands, if found guilty she will serve a life sentence.

Deborah seeks solace in her memories of Neil and their children and the love they shared.

An ordinary woman caught up in an extraordinary situation. A finely written page-turner, compelling, eloquent, heart-breaking.

The Kindest Thing tackles a controversial topic with skill and sensitivity.

A book that begs the question: what would you do?
