Publisher's Summary

What will a mother sacrifice to have it all?

Meet Silicon Valley executive Tessa Callahan, a woman passionate about the power of technology to transform women’s lives. Her company’s latest invention, the Seahorse Solution, includes a breakthrough procedure that safely accelerates human pregnancy from nine months to nine weeks, along with other major upgrades to a woman’s experience of early maternity.

The inaugural human trial of Seahorse will change the future of motherhood - and it’s Tessa’s job to monitor the first volunteer mothers-to-be. She’ll be their advocate and confidante. She’ll allay their doubts and soothe their anxieties. But when Tessa discovers disturbing truths behind the transformative technology she’s championed, her own fear begins to rock her faith in the Seahorse Solution. With each new secret Tessa uncovers, she realizes that the endgame is too inconceivable to imagine.

Caeli Wolfson Widger’s bold and timely novel examines the fraught sacrifices that women make to succeed in both career and family against a backdrop of technological innovation. It’s a story of friendship, risk, betrayal, and redemption - and an unnerving interrogation of a future in which women can engineer their lives as never before.

Scary in possible reality

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would gladly listen to another. This was an original idea. Yes, the names like T.E.E.T. are a bit obvious, but let’s face it- people name real things things like that for real all the time, especially when it works so conveniently.
This book makes you think about the degree of scientific intervention in natural processes. Very great listen.

This is the third book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Christina Traister ) and I would listen to another. She narrates really well. Her character voices are well done, reading pace and style is great, diction is clear and she brings out the characters personalities so well they seem real.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

I Wanted to Love It

Okay plot, but character conversations were often difficult to get through. Not sure if it was the writing and/or the narrator. The acronyms and terms used to reference programs, people, and equipment were annoying as well. TEET, PIT, cohort, etc...really?! It was a struggle, however I managed to listen to the whole book. I can't see myself re-reading/listening to it again.
