Publisher Description

The lives of several families are thrown into tragic disarray when a devious fertility doctor betrays their trust in the first of two novellas, To Play at God.

Doctor Alan Wilcross has escaped his impoverished past in England and set up shop in Canada as a leading fertility specialist. When his old college friend Joan seeks advice on having a child with her wife Helen, the doctor offers to be their sperm donor. Years later, this gesture will lead to revelations about the now-teenaged children of three other couples who were patients at the doctor's clinic. In the end, the fates of multiple families become intertwined in this tightly wound tale of the tragic consequences of a doctor defying his Hippocratic Oath.

The second novella, Ask Gloria, is set before and during the COVID-19 pandemic as Jennifer Carr struggles with alcohol addiction while the world locks down. Her daughter Layla is an orderly on the COVID ward of a hospital and is trapped in an abusive relationship. Jennifer uses her advice column, "THAT'S LIFE—Ask Gloria Pierce" to coax Layla into escaping her violent partner. Will they both be able to overcome their struggles, made that much worse by the confinement brought about by the pandemic?

Author Anna Blauveldt's two novellas explore themes of deceit, betrayal, love, and perseverance in this timely debut.
