Summary

When three South Yorkshire friends picnic on top of an ancient fertility symbol, who could have known that within four months they would all have their own eggs fertilised!
For Helen, pregnancy is a dream come true. But the more the baby grows inside her, the more she can see her outwardly perfect marriage crumbling.
For career-woman Janey, it is a nightmare. How could it have happened? She and her husband George, ecstatic at the prospect of being a dad, were always so careful over contraception.
And the emotionally lost Elizabeth is not only carrying a child she fears she will never love, but she must also deal with the return of a man whose love she can never have.

A happy tale with northern grace and humour

Expecting a baby myself, I turned to this book for a light listen and perhaps some fictional education - to be honest the more baby books I read, the more I realise everyone's experience is so different, that I may as well read fiction! It didn't disappoint, and I would recommend it as a happy beach listen. The 3 main character's stories were honest and had some depth, and their plots weaved on fairly predictably but with northern brash charm, humour and some great 'Go Girl!' moments, so none the worse for it.

The end did actually have me welling up - though in my state that's not strange, but I suspect I would have anyway. This is definitely one for the girls, and has a happy balance of pathos, humour and some heart melting moments.

a nice listen

It was definitely a chick read, but I enjoyed it. Parts were quite predictable, but that did not really bother me. I wanted a "lighter" read and that is what I got! I would recommend it and read more of her books.

Fantastic

Loved every second of this book! Will be one that I revisit often. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you cringe (sp?) in some places, but to me that is what makes a book great! The emotion you feel and the bonds you form with the characters. I see a little of myself in each of the leading ladies, which, for me, makes the book so much fun to read. Give it a shot, I'm sure you'll love it!
