Absolutely perfect writing! It's a complicated situation and will make you think and question the very ethics of creating embryos. What should a couple do with the embryos they don't't need? They are potential babies and people! Could you just throw them away or would you want them to have a life with someone else? I was thrilled by this book and hope for something else from this author soon! I recommend it to any discerning reader! Introduction Catriona and James are desperate for children, and embark on an IVF program. After a gruelling round of treatments, Catriona finally falls pregnant, and they donate their remaining embryo anonymously. Diana and Liam are on a waiting list to receive an embryo. Sooner than expected, they are thrilled to discover one is available. After a difficult pregnancy, Catriona gives birth to Sebastian. But severe postnatal depression affects her badly, and quickly turns into deadly psychosis. For her protection and her baby's, she's admitted into psychiatric care. When she comes home, she again struggles to bond with her baby, but gradually life finds its own rhythm. Meanwhile, Diana has given birth to a beautiful little boy, Noah. But when he is two months old Noah is abducted...and Diana and Liam's nightmare begins.
