Nina Little’s travelogue-memoir is highly recommended for anyone who is struggling with infertility or anyone who loves someone who is struggling with infertility. But its resonance doesn’t end there. As an insight to Chinese travel, culture, and history, I know of no other book which so comprehensively, respectfully, and authoritatively covers this ground. Every new city or village has its own flavor, which the author brings magically to life.
Little uses her reporter skills to weave a compelling tale, seamlessly travelling between travel journal and a gripping, raw personal tale. For the memoir aspect, the book’s greatest values are its unwavering honesty and its invaluable message: You are not alone.
Spirit Baby is almost literary in its handling of human emotions. Its writing tone reflects its subject’s feelings as we move from heartbreak to hope. You’ll be hooked from Page 1.
