Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Complex, insightful, and beautifully written…a book that will stay with you long after the final page.” Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author
“Kothari uses baby-making as a means to explore themes of friendship and tradition…Kothari offers no easy answers, making this an especially good choice for women’s-fiction book groups.” Booklist (starred review)
“The characters are well-defined, and the ways that surrogacy does and doesn’t fit with Naira’s conservative Indian family are nuanced and considered.” Publishers Weekly
“Falguni Kothari’s exquisitely complex story of marriage, friendships, and unconventional choices reminds us that real love requires great courage.” Jamie Beck, author of When You Knew, praise for the author
“An intensely original and provocative story that tackles the complex challenges a modern woman faces within marriage…Kothari grapples with love, ambition, friendship, and motherhood in this brave, insightful novel.” Barbara O’Neal, author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets
