"Having a baby is ... complicated. Dimple knows. She's a successful actress who is turning forty-though her agent and her resume insist she's only thirty-six-and she figures it's now or never. Certainly it's not a good time for an intriguing director to show up at her door with a great script. Eva, fabulous agent to the stars, doesn't want kids-and never wanted kids. Why is her decision so damned hard for everyone else to accept? When Maryn was undergoing treatment for cancer, she and her husband both agreed to have embryos frozen. But that was way before their divorce and her remission-and now she's single and childless, and caught in the middle of a controversy she never saw coming. The traditional and nontraditional couples desperate for a baby ... the adoptive parents ... the single mom ... the two who want nothing to do with parenthood ... This is a thoroughly modern story of the pursuit of family in all its forms-and of five very different ways of getting there."--Page 4 of cover.

A complicated look at various women, who's lives all intersect at various points in the book, as well as one man. A nice read, but overly complicated and a bit too fantastical in places.
