So complicated. That's what I thought through this book of conversations and emotional rollercoasters. Cohen takes us inside the heads and hearts of surrogate motherhood with this novel. Does anyone act with complete altruism, or are good intentions and motivations stronger than that ... and worth hiding?
Those of us with children take parenthood for granted. Those who want children pine for them, long to hold a baby, and dream of raising children. Claire and Ben are such a couple. Romily is a single mom who has been Ben's friend for decades.
A stunning novel that keeps you engaged and wondering, page by page. After the final page, you may begin to breathe again.
