When Daphne becomes pregnant, it isn't only her life that changes... For her husband Amir, for their parents, and for their friends Guy and Abigail, the pregnancy and birth force them all to look at their own lives, at what they want, at their pasts and their futures. Each person has a different perspective of the delivery, and of the complexity of having a child: the difference between men and women, a changing self-perception of parents, conflicts between work and parenthood. Lives are changed, and the equilibrium each of them has achieved is fundamentally disturbed until, after the delivery, they can find a new balance for the future. "Giving birth is almost never depicted in fiction. I don't remember ever reading such a description of a delivery, neither in Hebrew fiction nor in world literature." Interview with Alit Karp, literary critic of Haaretz and Makor Rishon "The book focuses on daily issues and touches the deepest places... I loved the novel and kept thinking about it long after reading it." Lee Yanini, reviewer in the The Israeli Librarian Journal "...a very profound novel, polished and complex. It is practically impossible to put it down until the very end. Barasch Rubinstein is an extraordinary writer..." Review in Chi Tarbut
