About What I Thought I Knew
In her unflinchingly honest and ruefully witty voice, Alice Eve Cohen nimbly carries us through her metamorphosis from a woman who has come to terms with infertility to one who struggles to love a heartbeat found in her womb – six months into a high-risk pregnancy. What I Thought I Knew was named Elle’s 2009 GRAND PRIX: BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR and was selected by Oprah Magazine as one of the “25 BEST BOOKS OF SUMMER.”
