Caro and Jeff have a good marriage, plenty of money. Caro only needs one thing to make her life complete ... a baby of her own. That was the reason she married Jeff ..security, not only for herself, but to be able to raise a child to have a much better than she'd had. And then they find out that Jeff is infertile. Sharon is almost full term, and unsure about her pregnancy. This was totally unplanned and her husband Craig doesn't seem to want the baby, either. Two families ...two different outlooks ... and their worlds are about to hit head on. Jeff goes a little crazy when he can't father Caro's baby. He's terrified she will leave him. After all .. any other man can give her the one thing he can't. And then Jeff meets Sharon, a woman who doesn't want her baby. To what lengths is he willing to go to get a baby for Caro? This is a well-written book about the effects that infertility have on some people. It must be awful to be denied the one thing in the world you cannot give the one you love the most. This is an incredible book with characters that stand out as real people. The ending encompasses all the frustration, anger, the feeling of helplessness, the emotional overload of this sensitive topic.
