Writing all of it like this, so cruel and right, makes it feel even worse than it is, but by its very telling, a little bit better.

Synopsis

After years of unsuccessful attempts at conceiving a child, Ana and James become parents overnight, when a terrible accident makes them guardians to 2 ¿ year-old Finn. Suddenly, two people who were struggling to come to terms with childlessness are thrust into the opposite situation-responsible for a small toddler whose mother's survival is in question.

Finn's crash-landing in their tidy, urban lives throws into high relief some troubling truths about their deepest selves, both separately and as a couple. Several chaotic, poignant, and life-changing weeks as a most unusual family give rise to an often unasked question: Can everyone be a parent?

Good

The ending does not resolve all issues raised but does offer hope for a bright future. A fine novel about contemporary parenting and relationships.
