About the author:
Writer, teacher, Brooklyn native, Ph.D. in labor relations, gardener, wife and mother are some fitting descriptors of Denise Gelberg. Since leaving the classroom in 2006, she has devoted herself to writing about the things that occupy her thoughts during long swims and runs. An advocate for children, she has written about the current state of education reform in the United States, including the book The "Business" of Reforming American Schools (SUNY Press). Fertility is her debut novel.

Denise Gelberg lives with her husband and two dogs - Sophie, a standard poodle and Rowdy, an aptly named wire fox terrier - on fourteen acres of rolling hillside ten miles west of Ithaca, New York.

Fertility: A Novel

Authored by Denise Gelberg
Edition: 1

It seems a perfect match: Sarah Abadhi, an infertile workaholic attorney with no hope or expectation of marriage and babies, and Rick Smith, a driven PICU doctor who's allergic to commitment. After meeting on a high-profile malpractice case, they spend five perfect months together, but things are brought to a screeching halt when Sarah inexplicably becomes pregnant.

After they part company, the unexpected pregnancy drives them to cultivate the barren landscapes of their interior lives.
Set in contemporary New York City, Fertility will appeal to readers who enjoy curling up with a complex love story - one where the two protagonists have to dig deep within themselves to overcome the hand they've been dealt. An excellent choice for women's book groups.
