Golden Oaks is a lovely retreat nestled in the Hudson Valley, offering every luxury to its residents – organic food, personal trainers, massages – who go through a thorough application and vetting process before being approved. These amenities are all available at no charge to the residents, who are, in fact, paid to be there as they produce babies for the super-rich who can afford to outsource pregnancy. A provocative novel that looks at motherhood and the trade-offs women must make.
