A page-turning, shirt-grabbing true story that follows a one-of-a-kind family required to make nearly unimaginable choices

How to Build a Family Out of Love and Spare Parts starts out as a charming courtship between hopelessly attracted opposites: Heather, an out-going, theatre-performing California girl, and Brian, an intellectual New Yorker with an unwavering writing routine. But when Heather falls pregnant, their magical interlude abruptly ends-Brian loves her, only he doesn't want kids. So Heather decides to have their baby alone.

Mere hours after Gracie's arrival, Heather's bliss is interrupted when a nurse wakes her, 'Get dressed, your baby is in trouble.' This is not how Heather had imagined motherhood. As concerns for her health grow, Brian and Heather begin a cautious return to each other. How to Build a Family Out of Love and Spare Parts transforms heartbreak and parental fears into a lyrical meditation on love and happiness, in all their crooked configurations.
