Review: The Two Week Wait
The Two Week Wait by Sarah Rayner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Two Week Wait by Sarah Rayner is a story of love, life and loss. Two main characters, Cath and Lou, who never actually cross paths are trying to accomplish the same goal by having a baby. They have both suffered through medical scares that have put having a baby either a task that must be done quickly or something that may be impossible. Through an egg donor/sharing program, these women's lives do depend on each other for what they each want the most - a family of their own.
This is a book that is written straight from the heart of those who have had to endure a variety of fertility treatments and the wait to see if life has been created or not. The characters are all very believable and as a reader you just want to see that they have everything they wished for, even if they don't realize what they what they want isn't necessarily what they need. Overall, this is a book that shows true emotion and car with the topic of infertility and how it goes way past the clinical side of things to how it effects a family as a whole.
