In our society, you can't buy a kidney or a lung, but you can buy human reproductive material in the form of eggs and sperm. The headlines today are full of new advances in reproductive technologies, and the treatment of infertility is a multi-billion dollar business.
Reluctant Miracle is about two women who forge an unlikely alliance to help each other. Maggie and Gordon Reed are just getting started with a major change in their life. When Maggie's sister dies, Maggie's grief propels her into jeopardizing her marriage, health, and their daughter's health.
Rita and John Montreaux are at the peak of their careers and social status, yet they are unable to do the one thing they want the most - have a baby of their own. Rita and Maggie come together, as a black woman and a white woman, and try to surmount differences. Reluctant Miracle explores how two couples negotiate change and conflict.
The setting for the book is rural Kansas as well as the college town of the University of Kansas. The metropolitan area of Kansas City is featured as well.
