This bittersweet story offers an insightful glance into both the life of the protagonist, and the ever-present misogyny that continues to invades women's lives. The author successfully employs a voice that demands empathy without sentimentality. Lovely to read.

I felt so sad reading this and then found a smile of satisfaction on my lips at the ending. Yes, so very many shades of character and such a trip of anger, sadness, hope and curiosity...what WILL her husband think whe she finds a way to r ebuild a life that included a girl...or a boy. That's what good writing can sometimes leave...curiosity.
