cover51847-smallSurrogate by David Bernstein

Released October 18th, 2014, Pre-order available

“Rebecca Hardwick wants nothing more than to start a family with her husband. But when a series of tragedies occur, she is left unable to have children by natural means.

Jane Nurelle is in an abusive relationship filled with beatings, drinking and drugs. But when she learns of her pregnancy, she is determined to turn her life around, even if it means resorting to violence.

Through an unlikely series of events, these two women come face-to-face with a notable scientist who has perfected a way for couples to have biologically matched children through the process of human cloning. But his service comes at a price…and the women share more in common than they ever thought possible.

Surrogate is an unforgettable tale of life, love, revenge and maternal instinct.”

***

“Surrogate” is a novella about a couple who are devastated when Rebecca receives a gun shot wound; although she survives – she finds she has cancer and her child bearing years are over.

Desperate for a child of her own, they turn to Dr. Tuber – a Doctor of a dubious nature and opt for surrogacy.

This novella is a bizarre tale about the lengths people will go to when they are desperate and the people who control the miracles. There were times in this book where I was truly horrified, because it blends medical speculation with the horrors of playing god.

A truly memorable chiller, that will make you look at things completely differently from now on.
