Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author comes a heartwarming and uplifting story of how three women find themselves empowered by unexpected pregnancies

Three South Yorkshire friends, all on the cusp of 40, fall pregnant at the same time following a visit to an ancient fertility symbol. For Helen, it's a dream come true, although her husband is not as thrilled about it as she had hoped. Not only wrestling with painful ghosts of the past, Helen has to deal with the fact that her outwardly perfect marriage is crumbling before her eyes.

For Janey, it is an unmitigated disaster as she has just been offered the career break of a life-time. And she has no idea either how it could possibly have happened, seeing as she and her ecstatic husband George were always so careful over contraception.

For Elizabeth, it is mind-numbing, because she knows people like her shouldn't have children. Damaged by her dysfunctional childhood and emotionally lost, she not only has to contend with carrying a child she doubts she can ever love, but she also has to deal with the return to her life of a man whose love she must deny herself.

Good easy listening

Good steady story and great narration as always from Colleen Prendergast. No surprises but a good story to escape into.

Absolutely Brilliant Book

Yet another brilliant book by Millie Johnson. Each of her stories is different with lots of twists & turns throughout & this was no exception.
I would definitely recommend it.

Well written

I love the humour around this book it has been well written and has had me in stitches is some parts remembering the time I was pregnant. and the twists of how the male partners respond to pregnancy was interesting. Worth read if you need a giggle pregnant or not xx

Lots of skipping

The story is good, predictable but still good with plenty of laughs. Colleen Prendergast is a good narrator but unfortunately the editing is poor, the start of sentences repeated and skipping and not only in this story but others from this author which is a shame. It’s still an easy and enjoyable listen.
