Times Nine (A Short Story) Kindle Edition
Nonomine might give Maddy everything she wants, but at what price?
Now with a new epilogue (2/9/2016).
Maddy knows she can’t give her scientist husband the one thing he really wants—an heir with his genes and genius. Or can she? Nonomine offers them the chance they’ve both been waiting for, even if it means living at nine times the normal human rate. But when things start to go wrong, the price they must pay is more than either of them ever dreamed.
Please note: This is a complete science fictional short story with an "aha" ending. There is no sequel to buy in order to discover the rest. It's all included here. It's not a romance or a saga, but a short story that we hope will get you thinking and wondering what YOU would do in Maddy's place. The scenario she faces might not be too far away in our own future. We have included a sample chapter of one of the author's full-length books for your added enjoyment.

The set up for this story was interesting and the science fiction aspects not overwhelming painting it as a near future with faster travel and great strides in medical science. While the short format didn't give me a lot of space to get to know the characters really well , their personalities still came across in the writing, something that Ms Branton excels at. I believed in the relationship between the couple and their conflicting desires. I also appreciated the relationship with the step son and what he added to the mix.
The place where I struggle with this story is in the completion of the plot arc. I'm not going to give details as to avoid spoilers, but I didn't entirely buy the solution to the biggest problem of the story and it felt like it ended really abruptly. I would have liked a flash forward with a few paragraphs to show whether the proffered solution was real and how/if it really worked.
In the end this was prolly a 3.5 read for me, but the sweetness and charm of the central relationship gives it a bump to 4.
Her family is herself her husband and her son Stewart and they’re an extremely happy family. But her husband really wants a baby
Her husband a researcher and gynecologist is sure he has a way she can have a baby. Can he convince her?? Will it be OK will she have seen complications??
You have to get the book to find out but I guarantee you you’ll love this either and this black!
