In three attempts at IVF Martina Devlin lost nine embryos. This is the story of her journey, from bewilderment at being diagnosed infertile, through the traumatic process of IVF, to the shattering fall-out when it fails and she realizes that, not only will she never have children, but somewhere along the way her marriage has been damaged beyond repair. But Martina also describes how her despair eventually faded, and how she made a new life for herself, taking pleasure in her extended family of nieces and nephews. Most of all, The Hollow Heart is the story of a woman learning to do as her mother always advised - to count her blessings.

Review: Hollow Heart

User Review  - Jenne Smith - Goodreads

An interesting book, I found it quite scary at how obssessed women can get about having a baby. Her writing was so real and I felt genuine sorrow for what she went through. Was a very interesting topic and such an eye opener into a very different world. Read full review
