Cradled Dreams by Beverly Hoffman
Release Date: 24th April 2013
Pages: 267
Genres: Women's Fiction

As her family gathers for Thanksgiving, Georgie's heartbreak is hard to conceal. After years of pursuing her dreams of motherhood, she has recently learned that her last option to conceive has failed. Grim amid the festive holiday celebrations, Georgie feels that she has little reason to give thanks.
Her sister-in-law, Robin, desperate to ease Georgie's suffering, struggles for a way to help. On loving impulse, she offers a solution-surrogacy.
Flush with excitement, neither woman can predict how her life will change. But each is comforted by the knowledge that her love for the other will guide the way. Soon, after in vitro using a relative's sperm and her own egg, Robin shares the joyous news that she is pregnant. Every conversation sparkles with her private joy at the gift she could give her sister-in-law. But she encounters unexpected criticism when discussing the plan with others. She must now deal with judgment and questions about ethics. Relationships are strained. Both must pay emotional costs they never anticipated. Soon, questions they never asked begin to haunt them both.
Where do boundaries of possibility meet long-term responsibility? Under what circumstances does science need to pause to consider moral outcomes? When organs and tiny bones grow in spite of circumstances never seen in nature, where does motherhood begin and end?
And most haunting of all is the question Robin couldn't ask herself on that first day: Will she really be able to give up the child for the sake of Georgie's dream?
