Publisher's Summary

Shyama, a 48-year-old London divorcée, already has an unruly teenage daughter, but that doesn't stop her and her younger lover, Toby, from wanting a child together. Their relationship may look like a cliché, but despite the news from her doctor that she no longer has any viable eggs, Shyama's not ready to give up on their dream of having a baby. So they decide to find an Indian surrogate to carry their child, which is how they meet Mala, a young woman trapped in an oppressive marriage in a small Indian town from which she's desperate to escape. But as the pregnancy progresses, they discover that their simple arrangement may be far more complicated than it seems.

good book but highly triggering

I couldn't put it down, even though the triggers came early and often. usually the ending at least pays off, but this one didn't. Don't start this one. You won't be able to quit it and it'll put you through the wringer. I'd look into the author's other works.
