Product Description

Review

Set in South West England, Nicola Thorne's latest tackles the emotive subjects of unrequited love and surrogacy which are handled tactfully by this well-established writer. Louise and Steve became close years before, whilst working together; Louise thought a relationship would naturally follow but Steve had already found Tina. Beautiful and elegant, but also temperamental and a hypochondriac, Tina is the complete opposite of Louise who honestly believes that it is only a matter of time before Steve realises he has chosen the wrong woman. Until then, Louise offers to be a surrogate mother for the couple, hoping this will bond her closer to Steve. The effects of this radical suggestion have powerful consequences not only for those involved but for their families and friends. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

'A STARTLING NOVEL WHICH COMBINES THE COMPELLING SUBJECTS OF SURROGACY AND OBSESSIVE LOVE – A DANGEROUS COCKTAIL OF GIVE AND TAKE'

Tina and Steve seem to be the golden couple: rich, good looking, with everything they could want.
Except a child of their own

Louise, solid and sensible, has worked for Steve for years and is convinced that he married the wrong woman. Her obsession with Steve leads her to suggest that she should be a surrogate mother to his much wanted child by Tina. The effect this has on the relationships not only of the three people most intimately concerned, but also their family and friends, is the subject of this powerful novel in which Nicola Thorne delves deep into some of the most controversial contemporary issues of modern life.

PRAISE FOR NICOLA THORNE'S RECENT NOVELS:

'"Bubbles with plots, counter-plots, mystery and romance"'
'PRIMA'
