The New Person - Loretta Nyhan

Genre - Women's Fiction

Release Date - November 29, 2022

Like many single mom's, Roxy Novak works hard to balance work and her son's needs. She holds two jobs in order to be able to afford their small apartment. She never expects her ex to take her to court for custody. Worse, she lacks the money to afford a lawyer. 

This is how Roxy makes the decision to become a surrogate. Nora and Owen Finnegan have everything they could imagine, except for a child of their own. After their latest surrogate miscarries, Nora is devastated, but there's one more chance. Roxy could be the person to finally make their dreams of being parents come true.

But, as is true in life, nothing comes easy. Each three has their own reason for being where they are today, and it's going to take an incredible bond to lead them on this journey of realizing what family is.

The New Person wasn't my normal read. It was filled with characters I didn't like, and a few that I really did. There was the underlying story of family strife, but there was also the story of hope and new relationships. It had me on an emotional ride that seemed to deflate as it neared the final chapters. 

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to love it, Nora never clicked with me. I just never liked her and that made it an okay book but nothing I'd want to read again.
