Bittersweet, at times funny, and always emotionally raw, this is by far the most moving and honest novel you'll ever read about infertility, IVF and its impact on a marriage. By the winner of The People's Book Prize for Fiction 2016. How can you long for someone who doesn't exist? London career woman Cat has always been in control of her life. Happily married to Dom, but flying high as a political lobbyist, she dismisses his desire to start a family ...until she herself is ready. But what if it is then too late? Complex and selfish, intelligent and open, if she is to succeed in having that elusive child, Cat must battle through gruelling fertility treatment and the emotional strain it places on her marriage. By her side, Dom, easygoing and ever the optimist, finds that he too risks being run ragged by their journey. Both are forced to come to terms with their longing for a baby against the blitz on a relationship tested like never before. A rare, raw, engaging fictional account of the traumas of infertility told with frankness and humour.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This novel will stay with me forever.' The Addiction of Books 'Definitely a book that someone who is starting fertility treatment, or is in the throes of, or indeed has been through and come out the other end with or without a child MUST pass on to their family and friends so that they understand what a hellish journey IVF is.' My Fertility 'If comedy lifts fallible fools upwards to love and success then tragedy brings those on high crashing down. What better heroine to pit against the cruel and whimsical cycles of the moon? By the end I wept, though I won't tell you why.' S. E. Lynes, author of Valentina 'Chandler has not pulled back from showing those aspects of the human condition that sometimes we'd rather gloss over.' Sara Bailey, author of Dark Water 'Although this is a fictional story, the account of the process of IVF treatment is very accurate - not only the procedure but it also portrays how many men and women feel whilst undergoing treatment. Rich with emotion this book also happens to be a very enjoyable read! Perceptive and touching.' Kara Myhill, Campaign Manager, Fertility Network UK Specialist Magazine
