A mom, a dad, a baby … and another dad

Laurie and Alan are expecting, again. After two miscarriages, Laurie was afraid they would never be able to have a child. Now she is cautiously optimistic—the fertility treatment worked, and things seem to be different this time around. But she doesn’t yet know how different.

Jack can’t seem to catch a break—his parents are on his case about graduating from college, he’s somehow dating two girls at once, and he has to find a way to pay back the money he borrowed from his fraternity’s party fund. The only jobs he is qualified for barely pay enough to keep him in beer money, but an ad for the local sperm bank gives Jack an idea.

Laurie and Alan’s joy is shattered when their doctor reveals that Laurie was accidentally impregnated by sperm from a donor rather than her husband. Who is Donor 296? And how will their family change now that Donor 296 is inarguably part of it?

    Jeffrey Stepakoff, bestselling author of Fireworks Over Toccoa

  • “A charming, big-hearted novel, Expecting is an exuberant celebration of contemporary families in all their insane, messy beauty.”

    Jillian Medoff, bestselling author of I Couldn’t Love You More and Hunger Point

  • “Ripe with conflict and controversy, Expecting is a perfect book club pick. Ann Lewis Hamilton takes a serious subject matter-infertility-and layers it with havoc, heart, and humor. Expecting will lure you in with its fresh premise and sharply drawn characters. A remarkable debut, Expecting is a beautiful reminder of the resilience of love and the elasticity of family ties.”

    Lori Nelson Spielman, author of The Life List
