The End of Miracles is a twisting, haunting story about the drastic consequences of a frustrated obsession. A woman with a complex past wants nothing more than to become a mother, but struggles with infertility and miscarriage. She is temporarily comforted by a wish-fulfilling false pregnancy, but when reality inevitably dashes that fantasy, she falls into a depression so deep she must be hospitalized.

This was an astonishing book that tugged at my heart. Starkman’s characterizations were deep and incredibly realistic, as were her descriptions. Though intimidating as a topic, I couldn’t stop listening and found myself gaining new perspectives on the experiences discussed within.

Oppenheimer gave a wonderful performance that I could listen to while driving and while on a treadmill, and she certainly kept me engaged
