"Orenstein's nakedly honest account of her decision at age 35 to have a baby and her ensuing struggle to do so reads like a detective thriller. Each new attempt brings hope and inevitable disappointment. In her search for a solution, she visits fertility doctors and alternative practitioners, considers adoption, and almost destroys her marriage. She does not spare herself from criticism, acknowledging how monomaniacal she became in her quest and pondering how her increasingly desperate race against her biological clock squares with her strong feminist politics."
