Publisher Comments:

“Dazzling…the platinum standard for memoirs regarding couples struggling to become parents.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Peggy Orensteins widely hailed and bestselling memoir of her quest for parenthood begins when she tells her new husband that shes not sure she ever wants to be a mother; it ends six years later after shes done almost everything humanly possible to achieve that goal. Buffeted by one obstacle after another, Orenstein seeks answers both medical and spiritual in America and Asia, all the while trying to hold on to a marriage threatened by cycles, appointments, procedures, and disappointments. Waiting for Daisy is both an intimate page-turner and a wrly funny report from the front.

Synopsis:

In this honest, wryly funny report, Orenstein pens an intimate page-turner that illuminates the ambivalence, obsession, and sacrifice that characterize so many modern womens lives as they strive to have a baby.
