Get ready because this is one of those weird books that has you wondering why the description at the back of the book doesn't quite make sense with the prose. You have Joelle who is divorced because she couldn't get pregnant. Mara (Joelle's best friend) is brain damaged after giving birth and Joelle and Mara's husband have a one-night stand and now Joelle is pregnant. And then there is this truly bizarre sub-plot about Joelle's near-death birth in a commune and this really great healer who has a twin sister and Joelle contacts the healer to help Mara. Oh and if you come across the book "The Shadow Wife" - it's the same book.

Mini-spoiler alert: I saw the end coming a mile away. Diane has written much more coherent books.
