Publisher's Summary

After years of watching her best friends, Ben and Claire, try for a baby, Romily has offered to give them the one thing that they want most.

Romily expects it will be easy to be a surrogate. She's already a single mother, and she has no desire for any more children. But Romily isn't prepared for the overwhelming feelings that have taken hold of her and which threaten to ruin her friendship with Ben and Claire - and even destroy their marriage.

Now there are three friends, two mothers, and only one baby and an impossible decision to make....

Thought provoking, heart rending, but ultimately uplifting, Julie Cohen's Dear Thing is a book you won't be able to put down until you pass it on to your best friends.

    "I absolutely love this book!!"

    It a rare book that keeps me listening nearly all the way through in one sitting. The characters were perfect, although Ben seemed a little dense at times. I adored Romily and Posey, and the ending was truly satisfying for the emotional roller coaster of a plot. It was a great listen, and I recommend it - perfect for summer vacations and holidays. The narrator was fantastic!

    Story
    "Beautiful."

    If you've read any other works by Cohen, you'll know to expect a story that strikes within you every chord and every emotion and every sense. She has this special talent for targeting your unique memories and bringing out those raw emotions from you, without ever having known you.
    This particular story is very real and very powerful. Her characters are flushed out and never flat. Her pacing is just right. Never rushed, never dragging.
    As for the narrator, I couldn't have asked for more. This narrator is very talented and does justice for every character, for every man, woman, and child.
    I encourage Audible to cover more of Cohen's work, if possible. There are plenty to choose from, and I know I am not the only one that will pay more than full price to hear more from this amazing author (and narrator!).
