Not sure why I picked up this soap opera of a book. My first clue should have been that the author also wrote "Beaches", which was turned into a very sappy movie. Well, this is a very sappy book. Go figure. The characters are realistic and interesting. But the dialog is formal and stilted. No one talks in full paragraphs unless giving a speech. The other bothersome thing about the book is how all the loose ends are tied up tidily like a Christmas present. Oh, there are a couple of disappointment ...more

I do not remember specific details on this book to give an accurate review, but I remember I enjoyed it very much. I first read one of Iris Rainer Dart's books when I read Beaches (the book the movie was based on). She is a good author who has the ability to make you care about the characters you are reading. She also weaves some good comedic parts into her stories.

I have always enjoyed stories about struggles with fertility and parenting. It would've been great to see what happened with the psychologist at the end with her baby
