The Book of Hannah: A Tragicomedy in Three Trimesters (NOVEL) by Ellen Gelerman
When an infertile woman finds herself pregnant, it’s a cause for celebration. When that woman is approaching her fifty-fifth birthday, it’s practically a miracle!
Hannah Murrow certainly thinks so in the wake of her (very) belated blessing. But she is disappointed that no one—not her husband, eager for retirement; not her longtime friends from her infertility support group; and least of all her moody, difficult adopted daughter Natty—seems to share her excitement. That all changes when Natty and her boyfriend turn Hannah’s improbable pregnancy into a marketing opportunity, and Hannah into an unlikely social media celebrity. In the process, Hannah reconsiders what it means to be a mother, both to the child she’s expecting and to the one she has already raised.
