Ms. Green completely gets what it is like to long for a child while others come by it so easily. It's rare that someone "gets" what it is like to struggle with infertility. This is a great book for all those venturing into the world of trying to conceive, and those with kids of their own.
This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down and read in a few sittings. Definitely a girlie book. Simple plot about several young women from the London area. I'm not going to summarize the plot here because that would ruin the book. Needless to say it's the perfect beach/long flight/rainy weekend read. Well written but not too deep. Imagine Sex and the City characters dealing with pregnancy and motherhood.
