The book tells the story of four women and a baby: India Croft, who’s struggled with infertility and a secret past; Jules Strauss, an Ivy League student who sells her eggs to help her father, Annie Barrow, who goes to work as a gestational surrogate to help her working-class family and give her young sons a better life, and Bettina Croft, India’s twenty something stepdaughter, who’s got deep suspicions about her new stepmother.
My take: 3.5 looks
The perfect literary “palette cleanser”. It is an intriguing story with characters you will love and hate, and a very satisfying ending. Chick lit at it’s best.
Will definitely read more by this author. Recommended.
