" This book was very disappointing. After I finished I went and read some of the reviews on here and they all pretty much say exactly how I felt about it. The premise is fantastic and there is is this big build up to the "secret" and then it is such a let down. I love the idea of the mother writing a letter to her children the night before they reveal a life changing secret. However this was done so poorly especially given that the secret had to do with infertility. The mother frequently focused on the fact that their father and grandparents were not "true" relatives, as if that matters in real life! A parent is the one who raises you and loves you and cares for you, that does not necessarily have anything to do with blood. Her entire perspective was ridiculous and unrealistic and I would imagine offensive to those who have actually gone through this battle. Additionally, there is a great deal of focus on the sex life between the parents, which a parent would never put in a letter to their children, nor would a child be interested in those intimate details. A shame that with all of the potential it was a bust. "
