Description from the publishers through Netgalley
With her fortieth birthday approaching, Lucy Carpenter dares to hope that she finally has it all: a wonderful new husband, Jonah, a successful career and the chance of a precious baby of her own. Life couldn’t be more perfect.
But the reality of becoming parents proves much harder than Lucy and Jonah imagined. Jonah’s love and support is unquestioning, but as Lucy struggles with work and her own failing dreams, the strain on their marriage increases. Suddenly it feels like Lucy is close to losing everything…
Heart-wrenching and poignant, this latest work by bestselling author Amanda Prowse asks the question: what does it mean to be a mother in today’s hectic world? And what if it’s asking too much to want it all?
I thought the beginning of the book was a bit slow. It is heart-wrenching to read about the struggles of infertility and miscarriages. Lucy was a character that was easy to relate to as both a wife and a step mom.
This book can seem a bit predictable but it was an ok read. I am not sure if I would recommend this book as it is a situation that a lot of women deal with.
I gave this book 3 crowns.
I received an E-Arc of this book from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
