I know this was done as book of the month a while back,, but I've just read this and loved it.
I can't recall a book that so accurately portrays the first few months as a new parent, and even tho my DC are teens and beyond it transported me right back to the endless days and nights as a new mother.
I highly recommend this book but be prepared as it made me weep and I am in no way post natal, IYSWIM
If you've read it, what did you think?

Loved it too...'guessed' the ending though. Maggie O' Farrell is a very good writer smile
