Sacking the Stork
Sophie presumed 'making sacrifices for your children' meant giving up Bloody Marys and champagne for nine months. When she thought about it, that is. . .
But then two blue lines appear on her pregnancy test.
How does a baby fit in with a hectic job, a chaotic social life, and the absence of Max, the Y chromosome in the equation, who has moved to San Francisco?
Support and dubious advice are provided by an unlikely group that gathers for a weekly coffee session at the King Street Cafe. It is with Debbie the glamorous man-eater, Andrew the fitness junkie, Anna the disaster-prone doctor and Karen the statistically improbable happily married mother of three, that Sophie discovers the ups and downs of motherhood. And when an unexpected business venture and a new man appear on the scene, it appears that just maybe there is life after a baby.
Written by two sisters who live on opposite sides of the world, Sacking the Stork is a novel which tackles the balancing of motherhood, romance and a career, while managing to be seriously funny.
