FRAN Cus­worth ex­plores the emo­tional is­sue of in­fer­til­ity treat­ments in her third work of fic­tion, Sis­ters of Spicefield.

The story re­volves around Jessica and Mike, who have four beau­ti­ful chil­dren with the help of IVF.

They do­nate a left­over em­bryo to a child­less cou­ple and sev­eral years later they meet Jessica’s bi­o­log­i­cal off­spring.

The book raises dozens of in­ter­est­ing ques­tions, such as who has the right to de­cide on the care of chil­dren when there are var­i­ous parental ties in­volved?
