Goodnight, Beautiful (Paperback)
A heartbreaking page-turner about love, loss and friendship from the Sunday Times bestselling author DOROTHY KOOMSON
'It's the ones you love the most that can lift you in an instant, and destroy you without trying.'
Nova would do anything for her closet friend, Mal. So, when he asks her to be surrogate mother for him and his wife, Steph, she agrees - despite her fears about what it could do to their lives.
Eight years later, Nova and Mal no longer speak, Nova is bringing up Mal's son Leo, while Mal's marriage to Steph continues to fall apart.
Now Leo is critically ill in hospital, Nova must decide whether to tell her family the truth about the surrogacy - and if she can allow Mal back into her life before it's too late.
