I am in the middle of reading the book Inferno. I really like it.
There is one of the caracters in the book that is childless. Some of the sentences from the book:
"Elizabeth Sinskey could never have children.
Time will heal the emptiness, her doctor assured, but the sadness and anger only grew inside her. .... For decades, she had battled her cravings to fulfill this impossible desire. Even now, at sixty-one years old, she still felt a pang of hollowness every time she saw a mother and an infant."
I googled the author quickly and I am not sure, but it seems that he and his wife are childless. I know that his wife also participates in writting, so perhaps she wrote these sentences?
Beautifully written. And sad.
I don't want to feel any pain regarding my infertility when I am 61.
