Jessica, the 36-year-old heroine, discovers that she is pregnant at the most impossible moment in her business life. ‘What will this do to me?’ she asks. She fears it will destroy her.The narrative of past events begins with Lily, Jessica’s mother, full of anger when she falls pregnant at the inconvenient age of 42. Her life will be thwarted and the birth will slowly destroy her.Lives mirror lives. A clock is set ticking. The plots ravel and collide.The theme of the book is ‘motherhood’ but here are many versions of ‘parenting’ - fathers as mothers, mothers as ‘men of business’, traditional late Fifties house-wifery and paternal indifference.The key question of the book is can a woman be complete without being a mother?

Jessica has no doubt that she can.
