scholarship and a family she’s ashamed to invite to Parents’ Weekend. Tall, blond, and outwardly identical to her wealthy prep-school-educated classmates, her plan is to take the ten thousand dollars she’ll receive from donating her “pedigree” eggs and try to save her father from addiction…

Annie Barrow is a thirty-four-year-old working-class married mother of two who scrapes by on her husband’s single paycheck. After watching a TV show about surrogates, 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), believes she’s found her happy ending when she marries a very wealthy and much older man, Marcus Croft, but decides that a baby will seal the deal. When all of her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology, and Annie and Jules, to help make her dreams come true…

But each woman’s plans are thrown into disarray when Marcus suddenly dies, and his twenty-three-year-old daughter Bettina is named guardian of the unborn child. As the baby’s due date draws near, these four women—with nothing and everything in common—discover what makes each of them a mother in her own right.

With her laugh-out-loud humor, startling tenderness, and spot-on characterizations, Jennifer Weiner once again takes listeners into the heart of women’s lives in America, in an unforgettable, timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, parental rights and the measure of motherhood.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Weiner revisits girls-are-their-own-best-friends territory with this savvy tale of a profoundly unorthodox family, unspooling the impossibly complicated and hopeful tale of how baby Aurora was born.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In this warm and winning yarn, Weiner draws readers into the lives of each woman, and brings them together in an unexpected and ultimately rewarding way. Another surefire hit for the popular author of Fly Away Home.”

    " Interesting tale of fertility and relationships. I have always been curious about surrogacy, but in my current state, I couldn't image doing it all for someone else. Another good Jennifer Weiner read- remember, she's easily PG13. "
