From the Publisher:
When 17-year-old Rosie's mother, Trudie, dies from Huntington's Disease, her pain is intensified by the knowledge that she has a fifty percent chance of inheriting the crippling disease herself. Only when Rosie tells her mother's best friend, "Aunt Sarah," that she is going to test for the disease does Sarah, a midwife, reveal that Trudie wasn't her real mother after all. Rosie was swapped at birth with a sickly baby who was destined to die.
Devastated, Rosie decides to trace her real mother, joining her ex-boyfriend on his gap year travels, to find her birth mother in California. But all does not go as planned. As Rosie discovers yet more of her family's deeply buried secrets and lies, she is left with an agonizing decision of her own, one which will be the most heart breaking and far-reaching of all.


From the Hardcover edition.
Annotation:
The death of 17-year-old Rosie's mother utterly transforms her life in unexpected, shocking ways. After Trudie dies from Huntington's disease, Rosie is determined to find out if she, too, has the disease. However, her aunt Sarah, who is a close family friend and also the midwife who delivered her, reveals that Rosie was switched at birth with Trudie's real baby. Reeling from this information, Rosie decides that she must find her birth mother and discover who she really is. When an ex-boyfriend offers to take her to America where her birth mother is living, Rosie embarks on a life-changing journey.
