Carey, Beth and Pam have good luck in friends, but terrible luck in relationships. Which makes it more difficult to get what they truly want: children. And time is running out . . .

After years of chasing headlines from Manhattan to Moscow, Carey returns home and is the first to abandon the traditional path to motherhood. She finds the perfect anonymous donor, and buys eight vials of his sperm. But on the day the vials arrive, she meets a man online. They fall in love. And she gets pregnant to old-fashioned way.

Carey passes the vials to Beth, who is recovering from a wrenching divorce. But before she can use the vials, Beth meets a man on an ice-climbing trip. She too falls in love. And gets pregnant. So she gives the vials to Pam. An eternal romantic, Pam will never stop searching for the love of her life, but she’s ready to be a single mother.

Then the magic strikes again.
