Peggy's story is the story of millions of Americans who have difficulty conceiving a biological child of their own. This could be a very depressing topic, but this is an honest, searing, and at times humorous, look at the lengths one will go to in the modern era to become a parent. Never say never. In the name of having a child, Peggy does things she didn't think she would, and in the end she finds what she's looking for. I enjoyed this book immensely.

If you have ever struggled with infertility, this book will strike you with amazing realness and clarity. What I have only experienced from the inside I was able to observe from the outside, feeling such empathy for the main character that I began to think of her as a friend. What you see from this story is the light at the end of the tunnel, even if the end of her journey was not the same as mine. A wonderful read.
