Life just keeps getting more complicated for Annie Baker. Her sister Lizzie is pregnant and wants Annie to be her birth partner; her friend Leila's got a new man and is getting heavily into yoga; and Kate from the village has somehow ended up having an affair with her own ex-husband. Charlie, Annie's six-year-old, is now officially pagan and desperate for his own pet pheasant. And then there's Uncle Monty to keep an eye on. A retired mole-catcher who collects bric-a-brac, he's 82 and a few sandwiches short of a picnic. As if all that wasn't difficult enough, Mack comes back from New York, just when Annie was beginning to think she might be able to cope without him.
