Infertility: The silent and unseen issue - Rosemary and Barry Jubraj - Roper Penberthy Publishing Ltd 2007 - £6.99 Pb 64pp - ISBN 978 1903905 31 9

Infertility is often a hidden issue. Unfortunately, many couples suffer in silence, blaming themselves, each other, even God. Rosemary and Barry Jubraj open up this painful and heartbreaking subject with wisdom and sincerity. Their personal experiences of infertility provide a valuable first-hand account. This book presents the issues from both male and female perspectives, giving insight into how Rosemary and Barry dealt with their infertility, together as a couple but also as individuals.

They do not claim to have all the answers. Indeed, their openness and honesty, apparent from the first page, includes discussion of where they feel they went wrong, how they learned from their mistakes, and how they are still striving to learn more. They encourage couples to think and talk openly and honestly with each other and also with God. Importantly, this book seeks to place infertility within the context of a biblical worldview. It also looks at infertility's potential to affect a Christian's relationship with the Lord. This book could be an invaluable aid for infertile couples, their friends and church leaders.
