If someone you loved was dying, and you had it within your power to save them, would you? Even if it meant someone innocent had to die to do it?
That is the dilemma facing Dr. David Franklin. Elizabeth Franklin is dying of the same rare genetic brain disorder that killed her mother. He has the money and medical knowledge that could save her.
The life of an innocent infant hangs in the balance, as one nurse struggles to prevent Dr. Franklin from killing her to save Elizabeth.
When experimentation becomes murder, how much are we willing to excuse?

Rebirth is a suspense novel about a desperate father's attempt to cure his seriously ill daughter by using his profession as a geneticist to manipulate pregnant women's fetuses. The new author's story is replete with villains, romance, a bit of "typing" ,and a bit of unrealistic science, but she pulls it off nicely with a well written, fast moving, suspenseful style.
Don't want to spoil anyone, but my favorite scene was the surprise birth and even more surprising outcome.
One of the things I liked about this book was the evenness of the characters--no one was greater than the other. They were typed a good bit--desperate doctor, Mexican characters, sickly girl--but this is probably typical of new writing.
That said, my favorite character was Janice. Strong yet vulnerable mom-to be.
I did listen to this book in one sitting! As I mentioned earlier, it was really written well and flowed so smoothly I didn't realize time went by.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
this book was interesting for the first quarter, but started dragging trying to weave too many characters into the story. This caused the book to drag on for many parts as people were brought in and out. the story picks up at the end, but the ending was predictable and overly dramatic without cause. Another annoyance is the book starts out firmly rooted in science, but toward the end takes a dive off the sci fi/fantasy cliff. I was not expecting such a turn, and overall it did not help. Too many characters, switching generas, some inconsistencies, and a predictable ending that way took cheesy, not my kind of book.
