When Annie's newborn baby is in danger of being placed in foster care, Annie picks up the phone to beg her sister for help. Will Lexie agree to help and take in her young niece? And how will Annie survive, losing the only thing in her life worth living for? What readers are saying about the stunning Before I Let You Go...'A heartbreaking book about an impossible decision.
