Juniper French was born four months early, at 23 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound, 4 ounces. Her parents chose to fight for Juniper’s life, and this is their incredible tale. In an extraordinary and gorgeously told memoir, Kelley and Thomas French, both award-winning journalists, explore the border between what is possible and what is right.


Customer Reviews

“The Frenches put forth a love story about their daughter, with highs and lows throughout and moments of sheer joy that will keep readers involved until the very last page. This achingly tender memoir is also a roller-coaster. . . . The narrative sparks a need to reassess the meaning of a miracle, and the story will resonate for days after the last word. With sharp prose, honoring the simple and the profound, this book should be in the hands of every parent--indeed, of everyone.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Two skilled journalists collaborate on the most personal of stories: their extremely premature daughter’s struggle to survive. . . . A fierce and fact-filled love story with few holds barred.”
