Giant is a gripping thriller exploring the dangers of genetic engineering and its abuse. We gamble with the unknown every time a child is conceived. But when donor conception is involved, are we gambling with a loaded dice? Are we risking the very roots of our identity - our genes - in a game of baby roulette? When Petra Penn Jones and Edward Dunstan meet as students, it's love at first sight. Both are fair-haired and unusually tall, and they share a surprising number of interests. They seem the perfect match. But they have more in common than they realise. All too soon they are caught up in a bewildering spiral of tragedy. And when, despite the violent opposition of both families, Petra and Edward get married and have two baby girls in quick succession, they realise that their parents' warnings should have been heeded...Emma Lorant delves deep into the perils of genetic engineering and highlights the ethical and moral dilemmas surrounding such controversial developments.
