BOOK 1: THREE WISHES: A True Story of Good Friends, Crushing Heartbreak, and Astonishing Luck on Our Way to Love and Motherhood (http://www NULL.amazon NULL.com/Three-Wishes-Heartbreak-Astonishing-Motherhood/dp/0316079065), by Carey Goldberg, Pamela Ferdinand, and Beth Jones
THREE WISHES is an honest account of three friends who each contemplated single motherhood—an often gripping tale full of surprising highs and lows on the road to lasting relationships and motherhood after 40.
Starting with Carey, who was the first to take the brave step of choosing a sperm donor, a chain of events began that dramatically changed the lives of each. As the “magic” vial was passed to each friend—either through “fate” or happenstance—they found marriage and motherhood.
With more women feeling compelled to face the choice of single motherhood as they approach midlife, their story is a sign of the times, and bound to resonate in the hearts of our growing multitude.
From the looming biological clock to tragedy and then joy, the journey of these three women is a revealing glimpse into modern motherhood for women in their 40’s.
