Summary
Evie Troy, an impulsive and funny young Jewish woman, has a tendency to overcomplicate things. And that can get her into trouble. When her dying friend Jean-Gabriel, a successful and controversial francophone writer, cons her into carrying out his last wish, delivering a monetary mea-culpa to his ex-wife Am<U+00da>lie, Evie decides she knows better. In a fit of misguided generosity, she appropriates his cash to help set herself up as a surrogate mother on behalf of the barren Am<U+00da>lie, a plan she keeps so secret not even Am<U+00da>lie has an inkling a baby is headed her way. Evie's pregnancy scheme pops so many holes at the seams that she's forced to enlist the aid of her estranged mother Marilyn. Back when she was Evie's age Marilyn lit out on the Abortion Caravan, a cross-Canada road trip whose final blow-out demonstration in Ottawa brought the work of Parliament crashing to a feminist halt. Marilyn can't fathom her daughter's daft determination to saddle up her womb on spec, but she agrees to come on board and the two of them head-butt their way through every step of Evie's program, from arm-twisting Mr. Right into coughing up his sperm to staging the flimflam that will relay the newborn to the oblivious Am<U+00da>lie. But will Am<U+00da>lie accept the baby they're offering up gift-wrapped? Played out against the backdrop of the fight for women's rights in Canada, Evie, the Baby and the Wife is the boisterous tale of a mother and daughter at odds, struggling to reconnect across a reproductive divide
