Dear Thing {Julie Cohen}


Synopsis from Goodreads:

After years of watching her best friends Ben and Claire try for a baby, Romily has offered to give them the one thing that they want most.

Romily expects it will be easy to be a surrogate. She’s already a single mother, and she has no desire for any more children. But Romily isn’t prepared for the overwhelming feelings that have taken hold of her and which threaten to ruin her friendship with Ben and Claire-and even destroy their marriage.

Now there are three friends, two mothers and only one baby, and an impossible decision to make…

Thought-provoking, heart-rending but ultimately uplifting, Julie Cohen’s Dear Thing is a book you won’t be able to put down, until you pass it on to your best friends.

5 Stars

What a thought-provoking book this was.  I loved it and loved the different angles the author took in describing each situation.  Each character’s individual story really tugged at my heartstrings and together they combined to create one interestingly intricate web. I love books where you can’t imagine how each story will be wrapped up in the end and this was a perfect example of that.  As I was reading, I couldn’t imagine how this book was going to end…and it made me want to keep reading to find out!  A beautifully told story about sensitive topics with so many complicated layers. I highly recommend this one!

Bottom Line:

A wonderfully written and thought-provoking story.
