Amelia Bradlow seems to have everything she needs to be happy – a handsome husband, a beautiful home, money, good looks and a glamour job. Everything, that is, except the thing she wants most – a baby.
Ed, her husband, is funny, affectionate and sophisticated by simply not interested in parenthood. He likes his life neat and tidy. And he likes having a wife who attends solely to his needs.
As she approaches 37, Amelia is faced with a life-changing decision, aided and abetted by Kiki, her hopelessly disorganised but ridiculously rich friend. Should Amelia stay in her nearly happy marriage, or expose herself to the vagaries of a single life and the distant possibility of meeting someone who wants to start a family?
