Lore must disentangle herself from a love triangle; Franckline must move beyond past traumas to accept the life that is waiting for her. Pamela Erens moves seamlessly between their begrudging partnership and the memories evoked by so intense an experience: for Lore, of the father of her child and her former best friend; for Franckline, of the family in Haiti from which she's exiled.

Very interesting book about the childbirth experience. Besides my own experience, knowing a number of NICU and labor & delivery folks, found it very true to life. Takeaway: don't have a set "birth plan" or even a set plan for your kids. Be prepared but just wait and see what happens--you really don't have as much control as you think you do!

I loved this book. It moved quickly and I felt the emotions of both characters strongly.

It was a good book but I just didn't connect with either of the main characters.
