Charlotte’s ten-year relationship with partner Zack is over. Desperate to be a mother, Charlotte is devastated that all of their efforts to have a child were for naught. After many tries and fails, Zack tells Charlotte that they will never be parents. He had a vasectomy. Shocked, betrayed and unforgiving, Charlotte ends their relationship.
One night while away on a trip, completely out of character for her, Charlotte has a one-night stand with a man named Justin. This would have long-range consequences for Charlotte, although she had no way of knowing at the time. Charlotte is now pregnant, and she soon shockingly discovers who it was that she slept with. This truly places Charlotte in a dilemma, thus the apropos title of this effective read.
In fact, the father of her baby is only one of several dilemmas Charlotte will be facing. With her son being born with a rare disease, quite naturally, Charlotte will make the best decisions she can for her child, even if it means revealing the truth of that single night, something that could cost her dear friendships.
One thing is for certain in this stellar read by Julia Roberts. Secrets find their way to the surface, especially when critical decisions could save a precious life. This story definitely has moral consequences facing the characters, but also has a very strong emotional edge that begs this story to work out for all involved, especially the innocent child in all of this.
Julia Roberts is a brilliant author who has presented readers with yet another evocative story, one that pulled me in right from the start. I loved the various dilemmas facing Charlotte and other characters in this book, and I stayed invested because I just had to see how everything would work out. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
