Genre: General Fiction--Women's
Simona Casale is a Minneapolis painter with a successful career. Having never known her mother, the last thing she wants is a baby, and being at a pivotal moment on her artistic path, it's a bad time to find out she's pregnant. Gemma Ledbetter, a London homemaker, is desperate for the baby she can't have.
Simona and Gemma live an ocean apart and never meet, yet they have much in common: art, longing, and a magic that changes both of their lives. And then there is Peter, the man they love. Magic—like any great act of creation—comes at a price...and one of them will have to pay.
Art. Love. Magic
