Then Came You, is not one of Weiner's finest novels. It is neither fantastic or dissapointing.
It is written in a Jodi Picoult style, each section which its own "voice" and narrative point of view.
This story brings together four women, from different walks of life. They have very little in common with one another yet some how manage to put differences aside for the love of a child.
Some of the character's are realistic but the storyline seems farfetched. It had a difficult time believing the resolution at the end.
An unexpected love story…
