Not My Daughter

A novel by

Anna's hands tense on Alice and she hesitates. In that endless pause, I see all I need to know. She doesn't want to give Alice to me - not now, and not ever. And part of me doesn't even blame her....

Milly always dreamed of being a mother. Adopted herself, she has always imagined a powerful, intimate connection with a child of her own. So when she and her husband Matt are told they can't have children, her dreams are shattered.

But then their loved ones offer the ultimate gift - Milly's best friend Anna and Matt's brother Jack will be donors, so that Milly can carry a child and finally have a chance to be a mother. And with everyone accepting and open, Milly believes that nothing could go wrong.

Except none of the four people involved are prepared for the feelings that will threaten their most important relationships as their precious, longed-for daughter Alice grows up and receives a heartbreaking diagnosis.

Then those who love her best will have to decide what it means to be a parent, and to make decisions with far-reaching and devastating consequences...for Alice, and for themselves.
