"Inspiration and solace come in copious quantities in Peggy Orenstein's dazzling new memoir, a heart-rending account of her six-year quest to conceive a child. [Orenstein] recounts an Olympian odyssey to motherhood that includes daunting obstacles while also racing along with the pulse-pounding tenseness of a thriller. So remarkable is Orenstein's account that it seems likely to become the platinum standard for memoirs regarding couples struggling to become parents ... the greatest strength of her memoir is her resounding ability to surmount the far greater writing challenge -- capturing the rocky emotional landscape she and her husband traversed... Waiting for Daisy accomplishes many valuable things in just 226 pages. But one of the most valuable is fostering profound respect and empathy for couples who endure great struggles trying to become parents."
