Then Came YouLarge Print - 2011
Princeton senior Jules Wildgren needs money to help her father clean up his addiction. Working-class mom Annie Barrow needs money just to live. And India Bishop needs Jules's eggs and Annie's womb because she can't conceive. But when India's much older husband dies, leaving his daughter as guardian of the unborn baby, confusion reigns.
Then Came You is the story of four women bound by commitment and change who struggle to answer the question, "What does it really mean to be a mom?" With startling tenderness and laugh-out-loud humor, Jennifer Weiner once again takes readers into the heart of women's lives, with an unforgettable and timely tale that interweaves themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, the rights of a parent and the measure of motherhood.
