“Take my baby.”
Hillary can’t believe the words her best friend Margot just uttered. Deeply committed to her devoutly childless marriage, Hillary doesn’t know the first thing about infants – and has zero interest in learning. But Margot’s postpartum depression has reached a dangerous peak. With the baby a sperm donor production and Margot’s mother Jean suffering from Parkinson’s, there’s no one else. And for reasons nobody knows, Hillary owes both Margot and Jean.
Suddenly, Hillary is forced to bring the baby from Manhattan to San Francisco, where she works as general contractor for the city’s hottest restoration company. Right away, the baby’s arrival exposes hairline cracks in Hillary’s marriage to Jesse and stirs up latent resentment towards her parents, who’d been too overcome with grief to ever parent her properly. Before long, Hillary finds herself doing all kinds of things she vowed never to do, including things with her handsome and mysterious neighbor Abe. And then the question arises: should this arrangement become permanent?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Author Leslie Gordon is a very strong writer, making the reader feel like she’s actually climbing up and down the hills of San Francisco, rallying back and forth between confidence and panic. She’s handled an unusual situation with tenderness, respect, and humor. If you’re looking for a book that feels like real life, but without the heart-wrenching sadness found on many book lists, this is a perfect read.
Heads or Tails is a beautiful, insightful story of friendship, loyalty and tough choices. Gordon creates complex and believable characters in Margot and Hillary, and the plot is never predictable. Highly recommended!!
I loved this!! The story flowed and the characters were drawn so perfectly. Love, friendship, marriage, parenting … all covered so well. I was left wanting to know more about the future of all. Highly highly recommend!
Leslie Gordon has done it again. I was skeptical about the story line, but the book sucks you in and doesn’t let go. I was sitting on the beach on vacation and could not put it down. She has a way of writing about relatable people in a real way that has you nodding your head through out.
HEADS OR TAILS is a well-written and compelling story. As a friend, a mother and wife, I related to main character Hillary and her dilemmas, and rooted her on. A wonderfully engaging book, I will definitely be reading more from author Leslie A. Gordon.
