Top critical review
6 February 2015
This review is by Marlys Craun. Mari Howard's second book builds on her first book Baby, Baby. While each could be read alone, they are probably best read in sequence. Ms. Howard continues her exploration of ethical issues in reproductive science and how they can impact everyone in the process, from those doing basic research to the prospective parents. She is especially good at creating believable characters that the reader cares about and at exploring the ways that decisions, seemingly individual, actually affect the interlocking dynamics of families, marriages, and communities. Which character was speaking occasionally blurred in the dialogue and I would have liked to hear much more about Daisy and her mother--but maybe that is another book.
