It's been years since Ben and Elise started trying to have a baby "the old fashioned way." Heck, it had been years since they'd started trying to have a baby using the best medical technology money could buy! The last few years have left Elise feeling alone, especially as she mourns the loss of a yearned for pregnancy. Then she meets two other women who also can't have babies - a sisterhood of sorts. And the connections she builds with those women help all three of them through some of the worst - and best - moments of their lives.

Sarge: This is very interesting. But you say that your heroine is 17 years of age. Then you say, "Until she reaches that age..." What age? You need to say which age that is. You might want to set it for the age of majority for the state in which your heroine lives. Some have left 18 as the age of m...

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear.

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all.
