For Anyone Who Has Ever Yearned For Something Out of Reach

The medication brought on depression, irritability, and insomnia--misery beyond what she had imagined. Yet Laura is willing to endure that and more, if only it will lead to a child. But hope fades with each new phone call--each prognosis another blow to endure. Unwilling to give up until she has seen the last expert on earth, Laura becomes consumed with overcoming her empty arms. But why is it that she seems to struggle alone, while her husband drags his heels at every turn? Isn't this their dream she's fighting to fulfill?

Humiliation. For Paul, that word describes the whole unpleasant process. And for what? To achieve a dream no one can guarantee? He and his wife have rewarding careers, common interests and hobbies, nieces and nephews to enjoy. Now all that was good and right and comfortable about their marriage has faded with the realization of this one strike against them. Against him. Paul, feeling he owes his wife something that can never be repaid, simply wants to see Laura smile again. But at what cost?
