About the book: Three women. One secret.
Megan is trying hard not to be bitter. She’s done everything right—married the man she loved, planned a nursery, read the parenting books. But after six years of insanity-inducing hormone drugs and desperate prayers, all she has to show for her efforts are enough negative pregnancy tests to fill a bassinet. To make matters worse, her star teenage piano student accidentally get pregnant. Megan has never felt so alone. But she’s not the only one struggling.
Christina has been off birth control for more than a year—she just hasn’t told her husband yet. When he finds out her secret, their already strained marriage threatens to rip apart. He’s uncertain about fatherhood, but Christina will do anything to be a mother and is determined to face infertility with or without him.
Then there’s Kyra, the mother of a precocious three-year-old who’s shocked to struggle with secondary infertility. She wants another child more than anything, but her family is already drowning in debt and knocking at poverty’s door. A baby is priceless, but try telling that to those demanding payment for the chance at motherhood.
When a school book drive brings the three women together, their uncomfortable secrets soon come to light. Can they overcome their heartache together, or will they allow infertility to tear them apart?

My review: It's always fun for me to get to re-read books that I enjoyed the first time. This one was published a few years ago, under a different title, I do have to say that I really LOVE the new cover! There were some little changes in this version, but the same basic story that I loved the first time is still there.
I loved the three women, there's Megan, Christina and Kyra. These three women all have challenges but one that sets the three apart is the challenge of infertility. I liked the way that Megan faced her challenges. Head on for the most part, and she was a little confused by any who didn't face their challenges the same way.
Christina isn't quite sure what's up with her, but she is concerned about a few of her symptoms and she's sure she should have been pregnant by now, but her husband really wants nothing to do with going to a doctor to see what's wrong and he's just revealed to her that he really doesn't want to be a father.
Then there's Kyra, she has a beautiful daughter, but her body doesn't seem to want to have more kids. She really doesn't want anyone at all to know that she's seeing an infertility doctor, it's kind of embarrassing.
I loved that we see this story through the eyes of all 3 of these courageous women. I really loved each of them. And I loved the way that they tried their hardest to help each other through their trials, even if they didn't know exactly what those trials were.
I loved the plot of this one, I found myself bawling near the end of the book for the pain and heartache of one of the three women. But the whole book has such a great message about watching out for those around us, and being really careful what you say and think about others, you never know just what they've been going through.
I loved this book! Go read it!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
