Summary
In the not-so-distant future, strong-willed and beautiful Kate possesses a precious commodity that most women have lost and most men want to control: fertility. Forced into a brain-washing boot camp that turns fertile women into surrogate mothers for social-elite men and their infertile wives, Kate thinks she's made out well when she's assigned to an eminent party leader. But when she learns that he's sterile, she's faced with an impossible choice: produce him an heir or die
