Can the result of a hospital accident, bridge the gap between two lonely hearts, who happen to become a family of dreams by chance?
While the plot has been built on a problem that is recently emerging in health care, I couldn’t find myself in any amiable position to like anything about this plot. There was nothing grossly wrong with the book; sound plot, good characters, simple narration. However the whole book appeared to create a scenario from which somehow I was able to distance myself. Despite the characterization being strong and personable, I was bot anle to loke them and hence it was quite difficult to enjoy the book.
The cover image is simple and sweet and reflects the title and the plot well. Thiugh I would have expected the image to show two babies instead of one, in keeping with the storyline.
My opinion: Nothig extraordinary to comment about. It’s a good read, but I wouldn’t go around making a recommendation.
My rating: 2 out of 5
