Description: At the age of 39, Paulette Bates Alden realized that she had become the person she always wanted to be -- a woman writing at her desk. On the way to achieving her most important goal, she had always considered motherhood but as she neared the end of her fertile years, with a wonderful husband and aging, obstinate, yet irreplaceable parents, Alden was struck by all she would be giving up by not having a child. Suddenly, she found herself faced with the possibility that she had waited too long.

In this intimate and searching memoir, Alden looks back on her southern upbringing and her conscious rejection of what seemed in the sixties to be antiquated roles -- those of wife and mother. Finally, she and her husband embark on a long and difficult course of infertility treatment.

Crossing the Moon is a wry, poignant, and beautifully wise story of the choices that all women make -- and learn to live with.
