This brilliant novel is a mirror for any woman who has ever wondered whether she’s making the right decisions in life – and whether she’s even got real control over her decisions to start with. It’s funny, warm, and thought-provoking and brilliant on challenging assumptions and expectations. More than anything, it’s such a human novel – Olive and the challenges she faces are so relatable, so well-drawn by the author. If you’re sick of stories about the glory of motherhood, this will be a breath of fresh air.

What the Critics are Saying
This tale of four young women trying to sort out the dilemmas of motherhood ... will bring relief and recognition to many. It's a lovely book - thoughtful, searching, funny, and (most importantly) honest
Funny in parts, painful in others, thoughtful throughout, it explores many dilemmas, with characters who feel utterly real
'It'll give a voice to countless women . . . a profound issue wrapped inside an accessible, highly engaging novel
It's warm and charming and yet VERY brave in its honesty about having children and how that impacts female friendships. I suspect a lot of women will feel relieved and seen when they read it
