Publisher's Summary

‘It’s just a phase,’ they said. ‘These are the happiest years of your life,’ they said....

Mother of one and professional writer Saoirse (pronounced Seersha, not Searcy - thanks a bunch Game of Thrones!) is still adjusting to the demands of motherhood, four years after the birth of her daughter, Anna. 

Living in the claustrophobic London suburb of Woodvale, and being surrounded by passive-aggressive mum-wars, isn’t helping. Neither is her increasingly pent-up anger at her once-perfect husband. Her only comrade in arms, best friend Bea, is the one thing keeping her sane.

When Saoirse’s agent asks her to pitch for a book, she is horrified to discover the topic is motherhood. How can she possibly write a ‘warts and all’ account of being a mother without giving away what it’s really like? 

Laugh-out-loud funny, painfully well-observed, but with an unmistakable warmth and unforgettable characters, this is the perfect listen for anyone who desperately needs a break! The novel may or may not have been inspired by real life....

Hilarious and authentic

Brilliantly written, hilarious novel about the pitfalls of motherhood. The characters were so relatable and the plot was flawless, and the narrator really brought the story to life. Can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.
