About The Book

Guillaume and Emma are newlyweds. Their life together is full of love and happiness, and they have everything they’ve always wanted… well, almost everything.

From unsuccessful attempts to repeated failures, the two newlyweds face a menacing foe: sterility.
Together, they embark on the confusing journey that is in vitro fertilization. Guillaume experiences the daily embarrassment of sperm donations, tests with dreaded results and endless consultations.

With self-effacing charm, William Roy humbly shares a deeply human experience that is propelled by unshakable hope.
