An unexpected love story...

 

Jules Strauss is a Princeton senior with a full scholarship, acquaintances instead of friends, and a family she's ashamed to invite to Parents' Weekend. With the income she'll receive from donating her "pedigree" eggs, she believes she can save her father from addiction.

 

Annie Barrow married her high school sweetheart and became the mother to two boys. After years of staying at home and struggling to support four people on her husband's salary, she thinks she's found a way to recover a sense of purpose and bring in some extra cash.

 

India Bishop, thirty-eight (really forty-three), has changed everything about herself: her name, her face, her past. In New York City, she falls for a wealthy older man, Marcus Croft, and decides a baby will ensure a happy ending. When her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology, and Annie and Jules, to help make her dreams come true.

 

But each of their plans is thrown into disarray when Marcus' daughter Bettina, intent on protecting her father, becomes convinced that his new wife is not what she seems...

 

With startling tenderness and laugh-out-loud humor, Jennifer Weiner once again takes readers into the heart of women's lives in an unforgettable, timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, the rights of a parent and the measure of motherhood.

Great book to listen to. To be rich and have to change your life when a poor woman marries your divorced dad (mom left to be with an in touch with the world guy - her yoga instructor) and wants a baby. He dies you are left with the baby and the new wife can't take it all. You contact the surrogate and egg donor for this baby to help you take care of it. Then the mother who wanted you so bad returns to take care of you. Money buys anything and the intricate story of all of these lives is interesting. Lesbians donate egg, mother of 2 needs money so donates her body for the baby, wealthy wife can't have baby and father of baby dies. Great story.
