Florence is pregnant and positive it's her husband's. Unless it's Thomas's. Loving two men at the same time is worth the deceit. Thomas is a neonatal doctor whose invention could save premature babies. Giving them a chance is worth the risk. Helen is a nurse grieving for her baby, miscarried before the new technology was introduced. Helping other parents is worth the sacrifice. A novel that explores what love can drive us to do; searingly funny, devastatingly moving and audaciously honest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A remarkable book ... elegantly written, intricately and plausibly plotted with some stunning surprises. A page-turner, in fact. More, it is moving about miscarriage, about childbirth, in a way that is exceptional' Craig Raine. * Craig Raine *
'An original and witty writer who deserves to be better known' Joanna Kavenna. * Joanna Kavenna *
'Excellent ... It's all there: humour, wisdom, commitment to the difficult truth. And most basic and most important of all, good writing' Claire Lowdon, TLS. * TLS *
'Singular and memorable, alarmingly frank, terrifyingly fearless, funny, clever, thought-provoking ... She uses comedy to lower your guard, then skewers you with impossibly difficult moral issues ... This is a truly adult read, demanding that we flex our intellectual and ethical muscles' Jane Housham, Guardian. * Guardian *
'Julie Maxwell's second novel is written with waspish wit and is unflinching in its examination of an under-discussed area of women's experience' Carla McKay, Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'She wields a feistily original brand of wit and she marshals a capacity for ethical debate that feels so unstrained ... Occasionally dazzling' Julie Myerson, The Times. * The Times *

“Complex”

I found this book complex in places, it covers so many aspects of pregnancy and premature baby care as well as affairs of the heart.
I certainly found it challenges your views on things and will no doubt leave you... More
