I really liked the story line , however the ending seemed to be rushed, it felt like the author was tired of writing and just stopped. I got to the end and thought there should have been more. Some of the main characters where left behind. But all in all it was a okay read.

Beautiful story of a Man whose wife lapses into a coma after the birth of their baby

Well, I read this book in pretty much one sitting and while it was also engrossing and entertaining, it was not my favorite of her books. It too had an open ending - albeit, not as open as the others.

I'm out of her books now and frankly, I am just shocked at how quickly they all went out of print. They are VERY good... I just wish that they were easier to find!

The story was a heartbreaking account of what can happen when unexpected events happen during delivery of a baby. Things went from great to disasterous quickly in a situation that does happen in real life, but thank heavens is rare.

The father must take his infant home while his wife spends months recouperating in the hospital. The emotional tole on all is felt by the reader. I felt all characters were well developed, and the medical information was accurate and well researched.

This was a well written book that was hard for me to put down. It is rare for anything to go wrong during a delivery today, but it does happen, and when it does, everyone is in shock.

The author tells a story of a happy couple from their first meeting, getting married, and having a baby. But then something goes terribly wrong, and when the baby has to be discharged from the hospital without the mother, the father must make some tough decisions that include calling his wife's sister, who she has refused to talk to for years. A lot of research had to be done on this book because the illness was accurate, as was the personalities portrayed by various people in the New Jersey neighbothood.

I got the ending that seemed too quick - I would love to see a sequel to see how everyone is doing......
