This riveting debut novel of psychological suspense explores the dilemmas that arise when motherhood and science collide.

Catriona Sinclair has always had a well-developed sense of independence--in fact the one sore point in her otherwise happy marriage is her husband James's desire to take care of her. As she's often tried to explain to him, she took care of herself before she met him, and did a good job of it. But James has been especially attentive lately as they struggle to have a baby. They succeed at last through in vitro fertilization, but unwilling to risk the heartbreak of another miscarriage, they decide to make their "spare" frozen embryo available to another family.

Diana and Liam Simmons are desperate for a child. Unable to conceive, they are overjoyed to learn that as the closest genetic match to the Sinclairs they are the recipients of the embryo donation. Diana's only concern is her mother's disapproval of IVF, but any doubts raised are quickly eclipsed by Diana's joy of being pregnant.

As Diana is finding delight in every aspect of motherhood, Catriona keeps waiting for the rush of adoration she knows she is supposed to feel, but instead slips into a deep depression. Just as Catriona begins to find her way back to normalcy, one of the babies is kidnapped. Suddenly, all of their lives begin to unravel and intertwine, and none of them will ever be the same.

Journal Entry 3 by LornaR at Whitianga, Waikato-Coromandel New Zealand on Thursday, April 11, 2019
Just letting keeta1 know that I have found 2 of the 4 books released at the War Memorial in Whitianga. (This one and Why Can't Elephants Jump) Unfortunately, it has rained very heavily on them and they are soaked right through. I will dry them off and see what state they are in, then decide if they are able to be released again.
I have been a member of Book Crossing for 12 years and this is only the 2nd time I have found a book(s). Every time I get a release message, by the time I get to the spot, they are gone, so I didn't even try this time. However, there was a message today on our local FaceBook chit chat page that someone had found the books and left them there. So off I went and grabbed them. Did the other two books get found?
PS. I've released several books but never had anyone post a journal entry about them! 😢
