Publisher's Summary

The amusing little inborn device known as the biological clock tolls for three women; two of them heed its compelling tones, while the third tries to ignore them.

Fixated with fertility rituals and medical advice, Julia is determined to conceive with her uninterested boyfriend; she hopes that the arrival of new life will save their relationship. Samantha, happily married and eager for the perfect family, finds that her new baby brings nothing but exhaustion, frustration, and discord; will an affair help? Maeve is a brassy career girl with a no-holds-barred night life; an unexpected pregnancy leads her to equally unexpected conclusions.

In this funny and joyful book, the question of maternity leads each of these three women to enlightenment and her own happy ending.

    "Captivating"

    A captivating story with very well-developed characters for a book of this genre. Excellent narration. Truly enjoyable.

    Story
    "Old School Jane Green"

    After reading most of Jane Green's books I have noticed a distinct difference between her older book and her newer ones. I can't put my finger on it to describe it. I suppose her writing has simply matured. I enjoyed this book, the story line was good, the performance good too. If you like her other books you will like this one too.

    "Excellent book!"
    Any additional comments?

    Although I was a little disappointed in the end due to the predictability, it was overall a great book. I couldn't stop listening.

    "baby, baby, baby!"

    Three woman, three stories involving the same subject: motherhood
    Julia desperately tries to get pregnant only to find out that her long-time relationship is coming to an end; Mauve's baby is unplanned but brings along the right man and Sam has the perfect baby and husband and is down in the dumps nevertheless.
    The three characters are only loosely intertwined, so it's basically three stories in one book, each covering a different aspect of motherhood.
    Interesting story - good narrator, easy to follow.

    "I hated two of the characters"

    I don't know if it is just me or just my opinion but I hated the first and third characters and their stupidity. I guess, though, that that is what makes them real. I Love Jane Green and I always relate to the stories but I guess, in this case, I related more to Maeve than Julia or Sam.
