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.

Review:

'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)
