Sophie presumed 'making sacrifices for your offspring' 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 who gather together 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 act of motherhood, romance and a career, while managing to be seriously funny.
