The story of the remarkable journey which all of us make from conception to birth has never been more graphically or movingly told. Hour by hour, then day by day, then week by week, Geraldine Lux Flanagan unravels for us the mysteries of that inner world in which we are first formed as human beings. The mysteries can now be seen as well as told. Scientific advances allow us to peek through a window into the womb, to follow in microscopic detail the progress of our formative weeks. Armed on the one hand with a stunning sequence of photographic images, many of them previously unpublished, and on the other with her gift for clear and sensitive description, Geraldine Lux Flanagan provides us with a truly compelling narrative, one that simultaneously sharpens our understanding and expands our sense of wonder.
