Have you read this book?
I'm ~150 pages in and WOW. Being in the place of life I am - newly married, wanting children one day, wanting to still be married to DH when we're old, etc - it is so gripping. How a whole family has to cope, and how the mother/wife is trying to come to terms with it. Oh, and did I mention I started this book on Monday and I'm already half way through?!
