Summary note:
They say that behind every childless woman there is a story. Is there also a story behind those who have children? Just before turning 40 years old, Silvia falls in love and shortly after, loses her father. It is then that she decides to get pregnant. She feels that life owes her another life. This brave autobiographical novel delves into the initiation milestones crossed by all women whose desire to get pregnant is continually thwarted: biological urgency, uncertainty, the specter of infertility, the reactions of loved ones, mechanical sex, the relationship's erosion, fears, and fertility treatments down the line. But it doesn't forget about the good parts: love, family, friends, and passion. Silvia Nanclares adds her name to the boom of new Spanish women's voices with a book that is a combination of powerful memoir and visceral, intelligently ironic novel.
