Which child would you save? A decision no parent can even fathom.
Eliot Gordon would do anything for her family. A 38-year-old working mother, she lives an ordinary but fulfilling life in suburban Atlanta with her partner, Grant Delaney, and their three daughters. The two older girls are actually Eliot's stepdaughters, a distinction she is reluctant to make as she valiantly attempts to maintain a safe, happy household ...
Then Finn Montgomery, Eliot's long-lost first love, appears, triggering a shocking chain of events that culminates in a split-second decision that will haunt her beloved family forever. How Eliot survives - and what she loses in the process - is a story that will resonate with anyone who has ever loved a child. With hilarious honesty, wrenching depth, and a knockout twist, I Couldn't Love You More illuminates the unbreakable bonds of family and reveals the lengths we'll go to save each other, even as we can't save ourselves.

"Starred Review. Medoff's fully realized novel beautifully explores the
most important relationships we create: as parent, as sibling,
as spouse." - Kirkus
"Medoff produces another fallible, witty, realistic heroine with whom readers will identify. Eliot's biased and evolving narration brings the characters to life in this gripping story of personal growth. By turns hilarious and heart-wrenching, Medoff's honest writing and realistic dialogue make the book truly enjoyable, while a Sophie's Choice moment and its repercussions make it a real page-turner."- Booklist
"Every woman has one: the guy who got away. So what happens when he walks into your life again? If you were happy before - can you still make that claim? The choices we make - and the ones we don't make-form the backbone of Jillian Medoff's wonderful novel. These are characters you know, or might even have been, and their trials and tribulations are by turn devastating, hilarious, and painfully familiar."- Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Sing You Home and House Rules
"How well Jillian Medoff writes about love - familial and romantic - and how deftly she brings her heroine, Eliot, to an almost unbearably suspenseful climax. A deeply satisfying novel." - Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy and The House on Fortune Street
"I Couldn't Love You More hits the universal truths, the deepest search for identity, family and belonging. This captivating page-turner draws readers right into the intricacies of the human heart." - Diana Abu-Jaber, author of Birds of Paradise and Crescent
