I proposed on our first date.
She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes.
It was a whirlwind, but we were happy…
Until we got greedy and wanted a family.
It was a life I couldn’t give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn’t on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn’t have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn’t understand.
Finally, we were successful…
Until we were forced to bury our son.
We were left broken, battered, and destroyed.
They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.
This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.
The retrieval of my wife and our family.
Release Date: September 13th
You meet someone and you know at first glance, they’re the one. Your life, your heart, your soul belongs to that one person. You make plans, you get married, maybe buy a house with a white picket fence and all the while can’t believe how lucky you are. You decide to start a family–sometimes right away, or you may choose to wait to get settled first.
What happens when the family you want do desperately is out of reach? You try and try, yet each time you’re faced with soul crushing disappointment. You cry, you grieve–some get angry. Some come to a point in their infertility journey where they decide to consult a specialist, seek out a surrogate or perhaps consider adoption.
Aly Martinez’s latest release, Retrieval, brings to light what happens after. How one couple, Roman and Elisabeth Leblanc, move forward from the devastation infertility caused them. We live through their pain and struggles and feel it in our own hearts.
“I’d always been amazed by how much punishment the heart could take. I was broken, battered, and destroyed…” -Roman
This story was incredible. In true Aly form, she brings you characters you can’t help but fall in love with.
“I can fix this…
I can fix us…
I can fix us.
I will fix us…”
We also meet Clare…beautifully broken who loves her child something fierce and will go to great lengths to save the child she loves more than anything in the world.
Their stories intertwine in a way that will have you glued to your kindle.
But it wouldn’t be true Aly if she didn’t toss in something completely unexpected into the mix. You think the story is going to head one way and it travels in the opposite direction.
Aly completely blew me away with this emotional book and I can’t wait for Transfer!!!
