First you marry a man who does not want children. He cheats and you divorce him. Then you marry the love of your life and find out he does not want to have children with you either. Although you always wanted to be a mother, you decide he is worth the sacrifice, expecting to have a long happy life together. But that's not what happens. This is the story of how a woman becomes childless by marriage and how it affects every aspect of her life.

This is the book I always felt I needed to write. Although 20 percent of American women reach menopause without having children, we don't talk about it much. Being childless affects so many parts of our lives from the days when our friends are having children--and we're not--to old age when you turn around and no one is there. Throw in stepchildren and the things we do to fill the gap left by our missing children, and I just had to write it down. People who have read it tell me they are glad somebody finally understands what it's like.About the Author:
