Happily married to Ed, Lorna had given up her career as a midwife to have her own baby. But fate when stepped in, she found herself widowed with a young son and another baby on the way. A year and a half later, Lorna misses Ed as much as ever but knows she must get out and make a new life for herself and her children. When her parents suddenly find themselves desperate for somewhere to live, Lorna invites them to move in. Having them around will be a great opportunity for her to go back to her job and for them to get to know their grandchildren. But that's before the mishaps, the arguments over childcare, and the fights that break out when Lorna announces that she's met a hunky doctor and is ready to start dating again.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Chick lit author Barnes (Split Ends) knits together a complex story of a widow's attempt to build a new solo life. Eighteen months after a painless heart attack fells Ed Price, his 31-year-old wife, Lorna, decides to return to work as a midwife. Impeding her resolve are her financially strapped parents, who move in with her after losing their house; unsympathetic siblings; and rebellious five-year-old Leo. Lorna's troubles mount when she starts dating as well. Aiding (and sometimes complicating) the struggle are Lorna's friends, colleagues and patients, who offer advice and life lessons as she engages in ill-advised amatory adventures with sly, manipulative gynecologist Eoin Sullivan. Though the British flavor is at times a little bland, Barnes knows how to keep the soap opera rolling along. (Oct.)
