Enter Ben's best friend Romily...
Claire and Ben are desperate to have a child. Despite numerous fertility issues, Claire finally becomes pregnant and ends up miscarrying right away. Enter Ben's best friend Romily, a single-mother who volunteers to have a child or them. Dear Thing is the nick-name for the child that brings them all together in a triangle of hurt and anguish. Author Cohen keeps the plot moving rapidly, and you feel and angst of each of the characters. It was a quick and entertaining read filled with provocative issues. Romily's growing love for her unborn child, Ben's infatuation, Claire's unraveling, Posie and Jarvis, Romily daughter and her long-lost father all enter into the fine madness that propels to a climax that will have the reader guessing where each of them will end up.
