Having a baby is . . . complicated.
Dimple knows. She's a successful actress who is turning forty—though her agent and her resume insist she's only thirty-six—and she figures it's now or never. Certainly it's not a good time for an intriguing director to show up at her door with a great script.
Eva, fabulous agent to the stars, doesn't want kids—and never wanted kids. Why is her decision so damned hard for everyone else to accept?
When Maryn was undergoing treatment for cancer, she and her husband both agreed to have embryos frozen. But that was way before their divorce and her remission—and now she's single and childless, and caught in the middle of a controversy she never saw coming.
The traditional and nontraditional couples desperate for a baby . . . the adoptive parents . . . the single mom . . . the two who want nothing to do with parenthood. . . . This is a thoroughly modern story of the pursuit of family in all its forms—and of five very different ways of getting there.

I wanted to really like this book, but honestly she just had way too many characters and was trying really hard to develop them all. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Tamara
This book had a lot of surprises for me! It was a little hard for me to get into in the beginning because of the various story lines but it's definitely worth it!Published 8 months ago by Jilliansham
This story is several stories that intertwine. I was a little off put by the opening chapter, from an actress who goes by the name "Dimple". Read morePublished 10 months ago by Book Reader

This book was decent. The writer is clearly a liberal. Unfortunately, she let her political views slip into the story (such as calling the Tea Party the fringe right). Read morePublished 13 months ago by K. Chipman
This was an awful, droll, boring book... could not even finish, it was so bad. The story was bad and the author's writing style was horrible.Published 14 months ago by Kelly Funk
Enjoyed this book enormously. I ordered it by mistake but kept it anyway as a gift. The author certainly utilizes all the sordid "twists" in life.Published 17 months ago by B. Hoffman
