Sign up for our newsletters! She has a great job and an even greater sense of humor. When Ellen Franck, the year-old P. And off she goes, into the strange and awesome territory of motherhood. Single girls wanting babies is all the rage in American pop culture now. Thanks to unwed mothers like Madonna, adoptive moms like Rosie O’Donnell, or wannabe moms like everybody I seem to know, maternity doesn’t have to go hand in hand with marriage.

Within the first 50 pages, we meet Ellen’s sister and the Pickle and her dad; and Ellen’s every word, her every heartfelt outpouring of love brings tears to our eyes. The whole idea of Big Bird as the perfect dad warm, friendly, great with kids is great, very original. Ellen is clearly ready to be a mom in some respects, sharing quiet moments with her niece, showing a willingness to understand every feeling the little girl could have that the child can barely articulate herself.

However, when it comes to the part about the man, Ellen is in love with a troubled Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist whose life unraveled when his young son died of leukemia at the age of seven. His marriage crumbled soon after, then his career, and he has declared that he will never have children again.

The complications of loving someone who doesn’t see in his life something that you see so clearly in yours leads Ellen to make some tough decisions. Her journey from sperm donor ads to Mommy groups is heart wrenching and true-to-life. And now that Zigman in real life is expecting a child with a longtime boyfriend, it is my hope that her next book takes the process even further.

Thirty-five-year-old Ellen Franck lives the New York dream. The marketing genius behind a prestigious fashion designer, she rubs shoulders with the rich and famous, has a great apartment and a hectic social life—but no baby. This quintessential New York story where yet another beautiful, talented women trawls a sea of potential fathers and comes up empty nicely ponders the question of whether women, despite feminist strides, still need men to complete them.

It glosses over other social questions that lie at its center, however: What makes it so hard for urbanite, professional women to find viable partners? The talented Bennett fuels her fiction with secrets—first in her lauded debut, The Mothers , and now in the assured and magnetic story of the Vignes sisters, light-skinned women parked on opposite sides of the color line.

The novel opens 14 years later as Desiree, fleeing a violent marriage in D. Marrying a dark man and dragging his blueblack child all over town was one step too far. Stella, ensconced in white society, is shedding her fur coat. Jude, so black that strangers routinely stare, is unrecognizable to her aunt.
