Contemporary novel which comically explores the juggling of career and motherhood. Debut novel from a high-profile journalist, which did very well in hardback. "Her social observation is unerringly accurate...Pearson is unafraid of dealing with the big stuff...beautifully written that it brought tears to my eyes, as well as a wry smile" "Telegraph". "The kind of book you fall in love with" Tony Parsons.
