5 Stars. This is a fantastic story that had me captivated from beginning to end. The premise of being able to keep a fetus alive at 12 weeks gestation and the implications are far reaching. So plausible. What if? Olson is a beautiful writer, who captures character and circumstance with just enough description to help you understand, identify with and feel compassion for the characters. I didn't want the story to end!
