The Object of Your Affections
Paris Kahn Fraser has a fantastic life: a wonderful husband, a luxurious apartment, and a satisfying career. And now she has finally figured out how to banish the one shadow on her relationship: differing views on children. Specifically, Paris has never wanted kids, but her husband Neal is a baby magnet. Paris’s idea? Hire a surrogate, give her husband the child he wants, but avoid pregnancy herself. When her former best friend, Naira, appears in town, it seems like the pieces are falling into place, as Naira would make the perfect surrogate. But Naira has shadows of her own. How will the future look for these two and those around them as the surrogacy partnership goes forward?
The Object of Your Affections is a fun, fascinating story of friendship and love with stories that spiral into stories, keeping readers on their toes. Readers will enjoy getting into the mind of tough, no-nonsense Paris, who struggles to feel any maternal feelings at all after a childhood filled with parental disappointment. Meanwhile, Naira’s inspirational attempts to get her own life back on track are a pleasure to read. It’s a unique story perfect for the modern reader.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
