I really enjoyed Sarah Rayner's previous book, One moment, One morning ,so it was a real pleasure to read this new story which features some of the characters we met in that novel.
This time, in The Two Week Wait, the story focuses on Lou and her quest to become a mother using IVF, whilst at the same time donating her own eggs so that another woman can be helped in the same way.
What then follows is a story of how infertility and the need for a child can encompass all things. The story is not without heartbreak but it is sensitively told and never sensationalises this very personal event.
I enjoyed the story, I thought it was well written and informative without getting too involved in the scientific structure of infertility.
You don't have to have read One Moment, One Morning as both books are stand alone stories, but is always nice to have some continuity and a chance to see a different aspect of a character we are already familiar with.
