Description
scholarship and a family she's ashamed to invite to Parents Weekend. Tall, blond, and outwardly identical to her wealthy prep-school-educated classmates, her plan is to take the ten thousand dollars she ll receive from donating her pedigree eggs and try to save her father from addiction
Annie Barrow is a thirty-four-year-old working-class married mother of two who scrapes by on her husband's single paycheck. After watching a TV show about surrogates, she thinks she's found a way to recover a sense of purpose and bring in some extra cash
India Bishop, thirty-eight (really forty-three), believes she's found her happy ending when she marries a very wealthy and much older man, Marcus Croft, but decides that a baby will seal the deal. When all of her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology, and Annie and Jules, to help make her dreams come true
But each woman's plans are thrown into disarray when Marcus suddenly dies, and his twenty-three-year-old daughter Bettina is named guardian of the unborn child. As the baby's due date draws near, these four women with nothing and everything in common discover what makes each of them a mother in her own right.
With her laugh-out-loud humor, startling tenderness, and spot-on characterizations, Jennifer Weiner once again takes listeners into the heart of women's lives in America, in an unforgettable, timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, parental rights and the measure of motherhood.
