While I can’t say I actually "enjoyed" this book, I did think it was interesting and it was a quick read. The subject is a couple unable to have children, going through a domestic adoption process. I never considered all the ups and downs that might occur during this process and it was the unknown and the learning curve that hooked me. However, I did feel the ending was quite abrupt, which is why I rated it a 3.5, rather than a 4 star.
