THE SHORT ARM OF CHROMOSOME FOUR: A Novel

If you were at risk for a fatal disease with no possibility of delaying its onset, would you want to learn your fate? Would you want to give birth to a child? Protagonist Julia, a newlywed, faces those exact choices when she unexpectedly becomes pregnant after learning that the devastating illness that afflicted her mother is hereditary. Julia's marriage is frayed to the breaking point due to diametrically opposed views she and her husband hold about whether she should get genetic testing and then abort her fetus if Julia carries the mutated gene.
