One of our newer large print novels is “The Promise of Stardust” by Priscille Sibley. Matt was 2 years old the first time he held Elle in his arms, 17 when he first kissed her, and 33 when they wed. The deeply devoted couple had everything – except a baby. When a tragic accident leaves Elle brain-dead, Matt is devastated. Just before he agrees to remove Elle from life support, the doctors discover that she is pregnant. Matt is sure Elle would want the baby to have a chance, but Matt’s mother believes Elle would not want to be kept alive by artificial means no matter what. The result is a battle which grows beyond one family and one single life.
