Book Summary:

Infertility stinks. No one knows that better than Megan. After six years of insanity-inducing hormone drugs and desperate prayers, all she has to show for her efforts are enough negative pregnancy tests to fill a bassinet. All around her women are accidentally getting pregnant—like her star piano student—while Megan remains hopelessly barren.

Megan’s never felt so alone. But she’s not the only one struggling.

Christina has just entered the world of infertility, made worse by the fact her husband isn’t ready to be a father. Their marriage, already hanging in the balance, is being torn apart.

Then there’s Kyra, the mother of a precocious three-year-old. She’s shocked to be struggling with secondary infertility. A baby is priceless, but sometimes Kyra feels like she’s being forced to choose which commandment to keep: stay out of debt, or multiply and replenish the earth.

When Megan and Christina are assigned as Kyra’s visiting teachers, they all realize that what you see isn’t necessarily what’s beneath the surface. Some secrets aren’t worth the cost of keeping them.

I learned a lot by reading this book. I had a vague idea of what infertility treatments and dealing with the emotional stress of infertility were like, but through reading this book I have a much greater understanding. I feel like this book contained many aspects of infertility. Each of the three women have a different journey, but I loved how they supported each other. I felt like I came to know these women and thus felt more invested in their trials and joys. There were many touching moments in the book. I really enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it to others.

Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!

  1. This sounds like a profound read that would bring awareness to the emotional struggle that accompanies infertility. Great review!

  2. I know something about this. We understand more about infertility now thanwe I was young and couldn’t carry a child.
