Die 17 jährige streng katholische Mary Ann wird schwanger obwohl sie noch nie mit einem Jungen geschlafen hat.

De manera habitual en sus relatos Barbara Wood nos lleva de la mano en una aventura basada en hechos cientificos como la partenogenesis, en esta historia toma recovecos en los cuales se pone en tela de juicio la fé, creencias y valores, para terminar con una bella historia de amor, muy diferente a las que se pueden leer en otros relatos. Excelente trama y desarrollo.
This is a story that takes in the issue of parthenogenesis, virgin birth. This is a possibility in one in one million, six hundred thousand births. Girls get pregnant although she knows she is a virgin. The Catholic Church is involved. Very good.
Actually... a VERY GOOD book! looking forward to reading it in English now!!
