***The second novel from Fiona Mitchell, author of the stunning The Maid's Room***
When two strangers, Tess and Annie, undergo IVF at an American clinic, their embryos are mixed up and each woman gives birth to the wrong child.
The women only discover the devastating error three years later. Tess wants to swap the children back; Annie doesn't. As the pair wrangle, neither of them expect what unfolds.
Two women. Two children. One thought-provoking novel.
