Kidnapped Motherhood, by Cristina Montescu

Marie-Soleil, a woman approaching forty, wants to have a baby. She has no partner and no opportunity of finding a donor whose identity she knows in her host country, Canada. Furthermore, most of her family and friends have stopped understanding her desire to be a mother. Facing the failure of her numerous fertility treatments alone, Marie-Soleil tries anger, humour, and walking. Can she escape her maternal instincts unscathed?

Translation by Jonathan Kaplansky of an excerpt from Cristina Montescu's unpublished novel A Hole in the Belly.
