Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Unique in its honesty and depth, Great Expectations collects 24 moving stories in an anthology perfect for any parent-to-be. Lynn Coady describes her own traumatic teenage pregnancy and the anguish of giving her child up for adoption. Peter Behrens details the two extremes he ricocheted between during his first child’s birth: helplessness and joy. Christy Ann Conlin describes pregnancy and birth at age 40. Anne Fleming contemplates her same-sex partner’s artificial insemination and the subsequent birth of their daughter. Edited by two acclaimed, prize-winning authors — both of whom also contribute stories — this stunning collection explores childbirth across age, sexuality, race, and gender, uniting everyone who has been touched by this awesome experience.
