'An absolute belter of a page-turner' HEAT'A fantastic book club choice' PRIMAWould you have a baby for your daughter?Ruth has the life she always wanted - stellar career, loving family, beautiful home - but now, with an empty nest, and heading towards 55, she feels restless.

Then her daughter is told that she will never be able to conceive, and Ruth discovers that, with the right dose of hormones, she could carry a child for her daughter.

At first Ruth is buoyed with a new sense of purpose, but her daughter can't contain her corrosive envy, and then long-buried secrets from the past resurface.
