All the Acorns on the Forest Floor by Kim Hooper
From Keylight Books:
A couple brimming with the hope of a new pregnancy.
A woman coming to terms with the truth behind her adoption. A husband trying to save his marriage from the despair of infertility. These are just a few of the stories in All the Acorns on the Forest Floor, a book about the lengths we go to for the love of our children, our spouses, our mothers, our daughters.
All the Acorns on the Forest Floor is a book of connections between people, connections lost and found, across time and space. There are stories of women who never became mothers (by choice or by fate), women who became mothers in unexpected or nontraditional ways, and women who gave up or lost babies. There are emotional aftershocks with each character’s personal earthquake, aftershocks that shake their lives and force them to consider who they are, what they want, and how they love.
