Summary
Thirty-nine-year-old Adrienne is desperate to be a mother. And this time nothing is going to get in her way. Sure, her husband, Gabe, is ambivalent about fatherhood. But she knows that once he holds their baby, he'll come around. He's just feeling a little threatened, that's all. Because once upon a time, it was Gabe that Adrienne wanted more than anything; she was willing to do anything ... but that was half a lifetime ago. She's a different person now, and so is Gabe. There are lines she wouldn't cross, not without extreme provocation. And sure, she was bitten once before by another birth mother--clear to the bone--and for most people, it's once bitten, twice shy. But Adrienne isn't exactly the retiring type. At nineteen, Leah bears a remarkable resemblance to the young woman Adrienne once was, which is why Adrienne knows the baby Leah is carrying is meant to be hers. But Leah's got ideas of her own: her baby's going to get a life in California; why shouldn't she? All she wants is to live in Adrienne's house for a year after the baby is born and get a fresh start. It seems like a small price for Adrienne to pay to get their baby. And with Gabe suddenly on board, what could possibly go wrong?
