We’ve tapped Luxury Reading’s book lovin’ blogger, Vera, to give us the scoop all month long on what books are worth the read. She’ll be dishing out daily book picks — and here’s pick nineteen.
College sweethearts Carolyn and Sean Savage wanted nothing more than to have a big family. Their sons Drew and Ryan were born two years apart, but Carolyn’s health problems and the couple’s unexplained inability to conceive made it difficult to have more children. After more than a decade of trying, their daughter Mary Kate was born after a successful round of in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Intent on using every embryo, Carolyn and Sean scheduled another implantation. Carolyn’s joy for her pregnancy quickly turned to despair when their doctor discovered the mistake. She had a choice: She could either abort the pregnancy or carry it to term and give the baby to its genetic parents, the Morells. Relying on their faith, Carolyn and Sean chose the difficult path and embarked on a heartbreaking path of spending nine months loving a child that would never be theirs.
Inconceivable is a tale of science gone wrong, and of one couple’s decision to do the right thing, no matter how difficult. Have the tissues ready; you’ll need them.
