'This novel will stay with me forever. I really connected with it.' The Addiction of Books
'It was as if the author was inside my head and, as I read on, I felt this over and over again. It also reminded me how the enduring silence and stigma around infertility is crazy, given that millions of people have been through it and largely feel the same.' IVF expert Jessica Hepburn, author of The Pursuit of Motherhood book & blog.
'Rich with emotion this book also happens to be a very enjoyable read! Perceptive and touching.' Kara Myhill, Campaign Manager, Fertility Network UK
'A novel that will resonate with many fertility patients…much that will be familiar to anyone who has been through this themselves, especially in the way that treatment takes centre stage and comes to dominate everything else in life.' Kate Brian, Fertility Matters
'Definitely a book that someone who is starting fertility treatment, or is in the throes of, or indeed has been through and come out the other end with or without a child MUST pass on to their family and friends so that they understand what a hellish journey IVF is.' My Fertility Specialist Magazine
'An absorbing tale of romance, idealism, love, success, human frailty, vulnerability and imperfection... Chandler does not miss one twist or turn of the emotional rollercoaster that is an infertility journey.' Gerry McCluskey, BICA Journal of Fertility Counselling
'If comedy lifts fallible fools upwards to love and success then tragedy brings those on high crashing down. What better heroine to pit against the cruel and whimsical cycles of the moon? By the end I wept, though I won't tell you why.' S. E. Lynes, author of Valentina
'An outstanding novel that completely bewitched me from start to finish. I enjoyed it so much that I plan to read it again.' The Book Magnet
