Overview

Welcome to "The Farm," a luxury retreat where women receive big money to become surrogate mothers . . . so long as they play by the rules.For wealthy clients, Golden Oaks Farm promises an environment perfectly calibrated to maximize the potential of their unborn children. For "hosts," the huge payout upon delivery can change the course of their often difficult lives. An immigrant from the Philippines and a struggling single mother, Jane is thrilled to make it through the highly competitive host selection process. But once she arrives at "The Farm" pregnant, fragile, and cut off from her own daughter, she discovers a different world behind the pristine facade. Along with the other hosts, Jane's existence becomes strictly regimented and meticulously observed--all for the benefit of their unseen clients.The intersecting lives of these unforgettable characters play out against the backdrop of the rural Hudson Valley, the lavish homes of the One Percent, and a crowded dormitory in Queens, where immigrant service workers rent beds. A novel that reveals a rich spectrum of female experience in a world that is very nearly our own, The Farm also calls into question a woman's agency over her body and, ultimately, illuminates the trade-offs women will make to fortify their futures, and the futures of those they love.
