Summary
A taut, emotional thriller about biology, ownership and love. Catriona and James are desperate for children, and embark on an IVF program. After a gruelling round of treatments, Catriona finally falls pregnant, and they donate their remaining embryo anonymously. Diana and Liam are on a waiting list to receive an embryo. Sooner than expected, they are thrilled to discover one is available. After a difficult pregnancy, Catriona gives birth to Sebastian. But severe postnatal depression affects her badly, and quickly turns into deadly psychosis. For her protection and her baby's, she's admitted into psychiatric care. When she comes home, she again struggles to bond with her baby, but gradually life finds its own rhythm. Meanwhile, Diana has given birth to a beautiful little boy, Noah. But when he is two months old Noah is abducted and Diana and Liam's nightmare begins. Where is Noah?
Summary
Struggling with her husband's protective nature when she elects to give up her last frozen embryo to another family after too many miscarriages, Catriona descends into depression while donor mother Diana revels in new motherhood, a situation that is upended by a devastating abduction
