My Sister's Child (2015)

 

Jo and Isla are sisters but they are as different as they could possibly be. Jo is a high-flying lawyer, responsible and hard working. Isla is a free spirit who drifts along without worrying too much about life. When Jo has difficulty conceiving a child, Isla gives her an amazing gift by donating her eggs, and Jo goes on to have a wonderful daughter, Reiltin. But now, years later, Isla is the one with fertility issues, and she needs Jo to help her if she is ever to become a mother. But does one good turn deserve another, or will Jo refuse to give Isla the one thing she desperately wants? This was a real page turner - I couldn't put it down. Jo and Isla's predicament was so thought provoking, it really made you think what would you do in the same situation. I empathised with both women, they were both so very different but equally likeable characters in their own ways. Jo and Ryan's relationship was realistic and raw, the strain that infertility has on a couple is evident. And the moral debate of nature versus nurture was present throughout, as Reiltín grows up into a teenager without any knowledge of how she was conceived, and her relationships with both Jo and Isla are portrayed well. Full of suspense, heartbreaking at times, yet uplifting at others, I'd highly recommend this excellent book. (LO)
