After years of watching her best friends Ben and Claire try for a baby, Romily has offered to give them the one thing that they want most.

Romily expects it will be easy to be a surrogate. She’s already a single mother, and she has no desire for any more children. But Romily isn’t prepared for the overwhelming feelings that have taken hold of her and which threaten to ruin her friendship with Ben and Claire—and even destroy their marriage.

Now there are three friends, two mothers and only one baby, and an impossible decision to make…

Thought-provoking, heart-rending but ultimately uplifting, Julie Cohen’s Dear Thing is a book you won’t be able to put down, until you pass it on to your best friends.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Julie Cohen has a genuine talent for plot, pacing, and crafting believable characters who pull you in from page one. Dear Thing kept me up long past my bedtime but sleep deprivation and dark circles under the eyes are a small price to pay for the pleasure of being pulled into such an emotionally rewarding novel.”

    Marie Bostwick, New York Times bestselling author

  • “This story of friendship, love and motherhood is written with compassion and finesse, capturing hearts long after the final pages. With three main characters whose emotions are brought to life, this novel will grasp the heartstrings as readers wonder whether a happy ending is always possible.”

    RT Book Review (4 stars)

  • “Cohen is a master at bringing to life the intricate details of love, hope, and sacrifice. Her prose is vivid and sensual, and her characters take on lives of their own in full dimension. A gripping work of women’s fiction with a satisfying emotional punch.”
