The Farm called Golden Oaks is a surrogacy Farm Women are impregnated with sperm to host a child Most of the host women are black Caribbean immigrant women They need jobs the money is good The clients are wealthy and white It s an intriguing story but the writing often felt motionless and toneless I kept wanting to add some Technicolor Jane who left her own baby behind Lisa feisty rebel of the bunch and Reagan are all hosts on the farm Each went through intensive vetting before they were selected Other main characters are Ate too old to be a host mother but had been a master Nanny ueen in her prime and Mae Ms Wealthy bossy of Golden OaksFor nine months the host women are medically monitored At the end of nine months the infant gets handed over to the client whose embryo they carry The host women are offered many spa benefits but also potential penalties Topic Themes explored are race class ineuality wealth poverty immigration motherhood trust friendships personal freedom rules sacrifice self expression exploitation manipulation childcare big business greed fear and isolation radical politics and morality with an all women dominated cast of characters The main female leads and the supporting females all have something to say At times there was not much difference between any of them other than we knew who the HAVES and HAVE NOTS were I wanted to like this than I did The ending is weak and the epilogue just felt long and senseless At the same time I honesty felt this book had potential The Farm itselfhad me thinking not particularly with all the stereotyping and the far fetched scenariosbut I do think it s possible there are surrogacy home retreats or otherwise With integrity these places could be a supportive environment for those serious about surrogacy Thank you Random House Publishing Netgalley and Joanne Ramos
