About the Book:
When Daphne becomes pregnant, it isn’t only her life that changes…
For her husband Amir, for their parents, and for their friends Guy and Abigail, the pregnancy and birth force them all to look at their own lives, at what they want, at their pasts and their futures.
Each person has a different perspective of the delivery, and of the complexity of having a child: the difference between men and women, a changing self-perception of parents, conflicts between work and parenthood.
Lives are changed, and the equilibrium each of them has achieved is fundamentally disturbed until, after the delivery, they can find a new balance for the future.
Delivery sounded great from the synopsis and I am so glad I have a review copy. I am not a mother yet but would love to be. The characters are very well created and the pacing just threw me into the story and kept me there.
Delivery is a real eye opener of a novel and is immersive. Multiple points of view in the writing was a wonderful way to show the different experiences and the structure of the book in stages and then the last chapter being a first birthday felt like building anticipation which was great and the last chapter felt like a real milestone to me and a celebration. This was something I loved.
A unique look into a first year of life.
I feel that current and future mothers will enjoy this and learn from it.
Thanks to Emanuela Barasch Rubenstein and Zooloo’s Book Tours for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.
