Publisher's Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author comes a heartwarming and uplifting story of how three women find themselves empowered by unexpected pregnancies

Three South Yorkshire friends, all on the cusp of 40, fall pregnant at the same time following a visit to an ancient fertility symbol. For Helen, it's a dream come true, although her husband is not as thrilled about it as she had hoped. Not only wrestling with painful ghosts of the past, Helen has to deal with the fact that her outwardly perfect marriage is crumbling before her eyes.

For Janey, it is an unmitigated disaster as she has just been offered the career break of a life-time. And she has no idea either how it could possibly have happened, seeing as she and her ecstatic husband George were always so careful over contraception.

For Elizabeth, it is mind-numbing, because she knows people like her shouldn't have children. Damaged by her dysfunctional childhood and emotionally lost, she not only has to contend with carrying a child she doubts she can ever love, but she also has to deal with the return to her life of a man whose love she must deny herself.

Ok, but unfortunately wanted to love it more ..

I've read a few of Milly's books before and love how summery and light hearted they are, and I really wanted to like this one too...but I'm afraid it just wasn't the same. It just didn't leave me with the same love for the characters and ended very abruptly. Storyline didn't grab me as with others and the title didn't really seem to come from anywhere, just a brief mention near the end. Worth a read if you're a fan but not a favourite.
