Druga w kolejce książka Barbary Wood z pewnością nie jest dziełem wybitnym. Chodzi mi o to, że autorka temat ważny potraktowała po macoszemu. Spodziewałam się, że chociaż pod koniec w słowach od pisarki dowiem się czegoś więcej, a jedyne, co dostałam to „Partenogeneza jest faktem”. Rozczarowało mnie to w znaczny sposób.
W 1963 r. siedemnastoletnia Mary McFarald zachodzi w ciążę. Wszyscy są przekonani, że po prostu dziewczyna uprawiała seks ze swoim chłopakiem. Nastolatka wszystkiemu zaprzecz i b

Die 17 jährige streng katholische Mary Ann wird schwanger obwohl sie noch nie mit einem Jungen geschlafen hat.
Für ihre Familie und ihr Umfeld ist das unerhört - zudem spielt die Geschichte im prüden Amerika der sechziger Jahre.

Das Thema das hier behandelt wird ist die Jungfernzeugung wo also eine Frau ohne Zutun eines Mannes durch chemische oder pysiologische Umstände schwanger werden kann und somit ein Kind zur Welt bringt.

Mary Ann beteuert die ganze Zeit dass sie sich nicht versündigt hat und

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.
