Inhaltsangabe: Liza was a healthy thirty-four-year-old when she discovered she could not carry a baby. Like the one of every six women who hears this news, Liza and her husband, David, despaired that they would never be parents. They both had careers. Life would go other ways.

Then the unpredictable happened. Liza's cousin, Jennifer, offered to be the gestational carrier for Liza and David. This is the story of how two women and their husbands came to the incredible decision to put their faith, their lifelong friendship, and their hearts into the rigorous, uncharted and emotional science of creating new life.

No other memoir has explored this medical odyssey -- the promise and the problems in pursuit of parenthood. No one has shared it with the world until now, in a heartwarming true story filled with eloquence and candor.

Rezension: The road through infertility and assisted reproduction is long and lonely, and couples going through its grueling medical procedures desperately need to hear the stories of successful parents. Conceiving Luc: A Family Story is one of these needed books, and it's both informational and deeply emotional. Liza Freilicher and her husband David went through years of operations, injections, and IVF (in vitro fertilization) procedures in a quest for a baby, until Liza's cousin Jennifer offered to serve as their gestational carrier. Jennifer was implanted with the couple's fertilized embryo and carried their baby to term.

Conceiving Luc is told through Liza's narration and Jennifer's journal entries, as each woman goes through her own physical and emotional ordeal to bring Luc into the world. The women were always close as children, but their relationship becomes increasingly tense as the pregnancy progresses, though the experience ultimately brings them, and their husbands, closer together than ever. While too much of the book revolves around Liza's ambivalence about parenthood and flashbacks to the cousins in earlier years, Conceiving Luc becomes a truly unique tale once Jennifer's generous offer is accepted. The Freilichers' heart-rending experience of infertility and fertility treatment is fascinating, as are Jennifer's story and motivations. As a story of an extended family's quest for continued closeness and as an inspiration for couples struggling with fertility problems, this story (cowritten by Liza's mother, Suzanne Wetanson) is a positive addition to the new field of literature created by the increasing use of assisted reproduction. --Ericka Lutz
