About Karen A. Wyle

I am an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters, living in a county outside a town in Indiana. I am a lifelong reader and sometimes an author. I read science fiction, historical fiction, biography, history, 18th and 19th Century English classics, mysteries, YA, and once in a while a bit of fantasy. I write science fiction and picture books -- so far. I don't read self-help books, except about writing and publishing.

This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.

Human cloning, a blessing or a curse.

If there was a way to replace your loved one, and all it takes is a baby, would you? Human cloning is a touchy subject these days, this is an alternative way to look at it.

The buildup in this short story is great! While the reader is tumbling around ideas in their mind, the story progresses to the answers. A good story, short enough to read on the bus or train going to/from work.

If Karen A. Wyle wanted readers to think about the effects of cloning, this story will do that. If, instead, the author intended to entertain the reader, this story will do that, also. It may be short, but it is good.

Readers looking for something short enough to finish on the way to work will enjoy this book. Science fiction lovers will also like this one, even if it is short. I have read several books written by this author. None have disappointed me, nor have any appeared to be a clone of any other book. A big thank you to this author for continuing to write entertaining stories!

I really liked this. It was kind of chilling, but compelling. VERY well written. Stories should stir your emotions and this certainly did. Thank you Karen for sharing this story.

The Baby was a very short story. It only took me about 15 minutes to read, but in this short story the author definitely got my attention and left me wanting more.

I love the concept of this story, and I think this short book would make either a great prequel or an outline for a novel. The whole idea of loving someone so much you could not give him up…How far would you go?

Cloning is illegal, but it seems love trumps rules. The Baby is truly a short story, but one that will remain on your mind for a long time. It makes you wonder about the real motives of a person. Is it really a baby Ellie wants?

I found this book to be an interesting read.
