Amanda Lohrey’s literary novel is based on a question confronted by many couples: What happens to a relationship when one person wants to have a child and his or her partner doesn’t?
Given a sultry performance by Tracey Callander, The Philosopher’s Doll concerns an academic, Lindsay Eynon, who is more interested in the secrets of the mind than producing offspring. Meanwhile, his baby-crazy wife, Kirsten, has become pregnant but is unsure when to tell him. To further complicate matters, Lindsay is pursued by an obsessive student named Sonia.
Callander draws listeners into this novel of ideas with her throaty voice and conversational tone.

Not at all what you expect!
This book is very down to earth and, by the title and book cover it’s not at all what I expected. Without giving too much away, I am at the stage in my life where I am thinking about a family so I thought this book would be perfect but it kind of put me off talking about it more with my husband! If you want a light hearted book with a happy ending this is not really the book for you.
