When seventeen-year-old Lily discovers she's pregnant, she has to make a choice that will determine the rest of her life.
Now, nearly sixty years later, in the late stages of Alzheimer's, Lily has been admitted to Lakelands Nursing Home.
Among her possessions, Zoe, a young helper, finds a diary with a note that it be read aloud to Lily's daughter Deirdre.
The diary holds the truth to Lily's past and, as secrets are uncovered, a tale of fate and responsibility unfolds that binds the three women together.
What If? is a compelling and beautiful story of love and loss, and how the choices we make don't have to define the rest of our lives.
