I was looking for a good vacation read and I found it with this novel. It follows the inter-twining lives of four women in New England.
Jules sells her eggs to a fertility clinic to pay for her dad’s rehab; Annie becomes a gestational surrogate to get her young family out of debt; India, the trophy wife, wants to become a mother to hold on to her new, rich husband Marcus; and Marcus’ daughter Bettina schemes to separate her dad from her young stepmother.
Each woman’s point of view is broadened as the book progresses. I really felt the desperation of each of them, either trying to make their lives better for the future or to just get things back to their old normal.
The plot had some twists that surprised me and kept me reading. I recommend this book.
