A candid, warm and engaging account of former "It" Girl and model Caprice Bourret’s quest to become a mother after the brutal medical diagnosis that she would never carry a baby to full term. She takes us from her early life with her single-parent mother and becoming Miss Teen California, to her game-changing move to the UK where she found success modeling, acting, and running her own lingerie business. Caprice then talks with wit and insight about relationships, dealing with her experience of IVF and the heartache of miscarriage, finding a wonderful surrogate and, finally the unexpected joy of two baby boys born within weeks of each other. This book will inspire many women who have given up hope of motherhood.
