As a Margaret Atwood fan, it was a double whammy to discover it read by another favorite, John Cancer. His warm voice kept me in my seat.

I saw this book on the shelf of a frened who reads voraciously and picked it up. The story seems to be set in current times, dealing with coming out as homosexual later in life, and then the quest for a same sex couple to have a baby.

Where did the author get her research? From a cereal packet? The problems the couple face have zero depth and predictable as to be unbelieveable in today's world. My partner was treated to several loud exclamations during the book as in," Oh you have to be kidding," even guessing the next plot line before it happens.

Makes every lesbian I know cringe.

The song sung at the beginning of each chapter in a whiny minor key had me clawing the walls to get out.

I saw the movie so long ago, but it came back in full color when listening to this story, performed by the author.

Listening to toni's soft and measured voice was pleasant and she brought through many nuances.

I am going back for more of her stories.
