SHEER WILLPOWER: A MUTINY TO MOTHERHOOD by Lauri M. Velotta-Rankin
"Sheer Willpower is a captivating and emotional book which provides honest insights into the challenges of infertility and adoption. I knew the subject matter would be tough, but I ended up starting and finishing the book on a 5-hour plane ride, a huge testament to the author’s strong storytelling. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is going through something similar or knows someone who is. The book gave me a deeper understanding of the emotional and physical struggles that many women and their families go through. Their stories are not often told, but their strength and bravery is an inspiration." - 5-star Amazon review
