Saturday morning coffee sessions are never going to be the
same. . . .
Sydney marketing exec 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 get-together at the
King Street Cafe. 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, 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 different continents,
From Here to Maternity is a novel that tackles the
balancing of motherhood, romance, and a career, while
managing to be seriously funny.
