This is a book I won't forget for a long time. I have to say, I've recently had a fascination with mothers and pregnancy. I mean, what is it like having a baby? It seems like a miracle to me.

"Harvesting the Heart" (Easily the most cheesy title I can imagine) was frank and colorful. Paige is one of the strangest characters I have ever read about. One minute, she's as wise as a ninety year old woman. The next, she's child-like and naive. At some points, I wondered if the author was suggesting that she was bipolar. Her husband, Nicholas, I understood. But Paige? Ehh.

Her love for her son, Max, is an afterthought almost, not an immediate response to his birth. I found that a little surprising, but then again, I'm no expert.

All in all, this was an intriguing read. The storyline was creative and I found parts of it very suspenseful.
