After years of watching her best friends, Ben and Claire, try for a baby, Romily has offered to give them the one thing that they want most.
Romily expects it will be easy to be a surrogate. She's already a single mother, and she has no desire for any more children. But Romily isn't prepared for the overwhelming feelings that have taken hold of her and which threaten to ruin her friendship with Ben and Claire - and even destroy their marriage.
Now there are three friends, two mothers, and only one baby and an impossible decision to make....
Thought provoking, heart rending, but ultimately uplifting, Julie Cohen's Dear Thing is a book you won't be able to put down until you pass it on to your best friends.
