Jules Wildgren is a twenty-one year old Princeton college student with a full scholarship and a family she's ashamed to invite to Parents' Weekend. Tall, blonde, and outwardly identical to her wealthy high school classmates, her plan is to take the ten thousand dollars she'll receive from donating her 'pedigree' eggs and try to save her father from addiction. Amie Barrow is a thirty-four year old married mother of two who scrapes by on her family's single paycheck.After watching a TV show about surrogates, she thinks she's found a way to recover a sense of purpose and bring in some extra cash. India Bishop, thirty-eight (really forty-three), believes she's found her happy-ever-after when she marries a very wealthy and much older man, Marcus Croft, but decides that a baby will seal the deal. When all of her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology - and Annie and Jules - to help make her dreams come true. But each woman's plans are thrown into disarray when Marcus suddenly dies, and his twenty-three year old daughter, Bettina, is named guardian of India's unborn child. As the baby's due date draws near, these four women - with nothing and everything in common - discover what makes each of them a mother in her own right.

Recensioner i media

"Then Came You offers an eye-opening perspective on parenthood in an age where the family is ever evolving." --"BookPage" "In this warm and winning yarn, Weiner draws readers into the lives of each woman, and brings them together in an unexpected and ultimately rewarding way. Another surefire hit for the popular author." --"Booklist" "A savvy tale... told with equal parts love and longing--whether it be for a partner, a purpose, or a family." --"Publishers Weekly" "Weiner's ability to mix humor, drama and the simplicity of real life makes her newest novel her best to date. The characters are relatable and universal, and readers will remember them long after the last page. With writing that flows like a conversation between best friends - effortless but meaningful - "Then Came You" is the perfect summer read." --"The Houston Chronicle" "If you're a Weiner fan you'll lap it up. And if you don't know her yet, here's the place to start." --"The Washington Post " "Weiner brings her trademark wit and humor to this lively story." --"Parade" "Jennifer Weiner's bestselling novels twist humor and topical issues into can't-put-down stories. Her latest follows the lives of four women who explore conflicting notions of family and motherhood." --"Houston Chronicle" "The conflicts enmeshing all these characters...are gripping, and Weiner's elucidation of socio-economic determinism is as sharp as ever." --"Kirkus" "Weiner has emerged as one of the biggest names in popular fiction." --"USA Today" "Compelling...a page-turner. Enjoy this title for its humor mixed with a sympathetic portrayal of real women's lives and challenges." --"Library Journal"
