  • Very Well Done!

    What makes a family? There are so many different kinds of families and ways of making one. As we progress in technology and scientific abilities this question allows many families to begin but also allows lots of questions and moral/ethical dilemmas. This story is at once heartbreaking and heartwarming. Very well done!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Emotional Story!

    This book is built on the premise of a secret, a huge convoluted secret. Two couples, who are best friends, come to the agreement that one couple will be an embryo donor to the other couple. This solves the problem of infertility but opens the door to a whole lot of other issues. This book was a bit of a roller coaster for me. The first part did not grab me at all, I wasn't crazy about the characters but I kept pushing on. About 1/3 of the way in, I started to become more aware of everybody and interested in the situations. And, it only got better from there. The main themes were family structures, mother-daughter relationships, friendships, and hope. This was an emotional story to read. There were times that I thought that it was too unrealistic, but the saying goes that “truth is stranger than fiction”. Life is full of unusual coincidences and events, so is this book. It all comes together for a good read. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an Advance Readers Copy.

  • Beautiful!

    Wow, what a wonderful book, what a beautiful story! An emotional read that hooked me from the very beginning. Heartbreaking though heartwarming at the same time. The author touches so many interesting topics: friendship, family, adoption, IVF, ambryo donation, death, grieving, parenting, just to name a few. The storyline is captivating and the characters are greatly developed. You can't but feel for both Isla and Lucy, the author describes them so well that you perfectly understand their point of view and reasons. I'm not usually a fan of two voice stories narrated in the first person, because I find them a bit confusing sometimes, but Vanessa Carnevale's prose is so beautiful that you can't not overcome that. A must read, definitely recommended! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • A beautifully told story

    This was a beautifully told story that I couldn’t put down. Families come in all shapes and sizes and this story told us about embryo donation, friendship, loss, secrets, and love. It had it all. A very heartwarming and tearful story that draws you in from the first pages.

    Thanks for your feedback!
