 The Mothers Giveaway and Review


What if the baby you gave birth to belonged to someone else?


The Mothers by Genevieve Gannon Giveaway


This story is well heartbreaking and theres heartwarming parts but really I found it just heartbreaking.   If you like a good sob, emotional coaster kinda story then this is for you.

The story:

Grace and Dan Arden are in their forties and have been on the IVF treadmill since the day they got married. Six attempts have yielded no results and with each failure a little piece of their hope dies.

Priya Laghari and her husband Nick Archer are being treated at the same fertility clinic, and while they don't face the same time pressure as the Ardens, the younger couple have their own problems.

Priya is booked for her next IVF cycle the same day that Grace goes in for her final, last-chance embryo transfer. Two weeks later, both women get their results.

Then the coaster starts, one couple with a child and one without. Of course there is an absoultely devestating discovery and choices to be made.


Genevieve Gannon is an award-winning Sydney-based journalist and author of four novels. She is presently the staff writer for nation's biggest women's magazine, The Australian Women's Weekly, where she covers everything from cold-case murders and cults to celebrities and sports stars.

She has written in-depth political profiles, comedic personal essays and true crime pieces. Her first foray into professional writing included dating and relationship columns which she published while writing her Masters' thesis on global terrorism and the media. She then moved to Canberra to start her news career covering local issues and politics.

Before she joined The Weekly, Genevieve was the chief court reporter for Australian Associated Press in Melbourne, covering some of the most notorious crimes of recent years. Her journalism has appeared in most of Australia's major newspapers and she has recently won the Mumbrella Publish Journalist of the Year.    

"The Mothers beautifully captures the desperation for a baby and the emotional roller-coaster of IVF . . . In the style of Jodi Picoult, it's impossible to choose sides. These characters and their heart-wrenching dilemma will follow you off the page and have you asking what would you do? An intriguing, thought-provoking novel." - Petronella McGovern, bestselling author of Six Minutes

I read *everywhere* I have an ancient op-shop kindle that goes with me everywhere and if I have ten minutes here or there, I read.
