Peggy Orenstein's widely hailed and bestselling memoir of her quest for parenthood begins when she tells her new husband that she's not sure she ever wants to be a mother; it ends six years later after she's 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.

Waiting For Daisy
February 20th, 2015
Well writen and shockingly honest. It is worth reading no matter what interest or not you may have in reproductive technology. I will however never fully trust Orensteins work again. She reveals herself to be a selfish, arrogant incompetent woman hiding behind baby lust and feminist ideals. I will never trust her again to give an objective account of women and girls.
