It's supposed to go like this. Boy meets girl, they fall madly in love with each other, battle some shit in their way, and after conquering the challenge, they ride off to their happily ever after.
But, not one fairytale, or love story tells you that after that ride, life happens. We had our story, and we were supposed to live happily in our bubble forever. After one check-up, our bubble burst and reality started to invade. And now, facing the unsure road of IVF treatment, we have to be stronger than ever. Once again, we must go into battle for our happily ever after. Taking that first step was easy. Staying on this road is harder than we thought.
And now, with unexpected obstacles in the way, it’s not a question of if the IVF will succeed. It’s will we be strong enough to stay together and reach for the stars?

This is a new to me author. As I always do I judge new authors really tough because they have huge shoes to fill from all the authors I do love. This novel tackles the sensitive subject of fertility issues. I won't lie Ana had me in full fledged tears down my face by the second chapter. That wasn't the only time she had me in tears through this novel. She writes about Dani and Sam's journey through fertility issues and IVF treatments so beautiful and descriptive that you can't help but feel all their emotions with them. The tears just come before you even know it. This is a very beautifully written novel about a sensitive topic. I can not wait to read more books by Ana Balen.

We give her debut novel 5 shooting stars
