Book Review: Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner has long been one of my favorite modern authors, and this novel did not disappoint. "Then Came You" is told through four narrative voices: Jules, the young college student who becomes an egg donor to help her addict father; India, the gold-digger turned loving second wife who can't conceive a child; Bettina, India's twenty-something step-daughter who doesn't trust her new Mommy Dearest; and Annie, a young wife and mother who decides to make some extra money through surrogacy.
Exploring tough topics like money, infertility, and sexuality, Weiner shines as always. Bettina was a bit hard to connect with, but I adored Jules and Annie. Curl up on the couch with this novel and let me know what you think!
