I first knew about Tony Parson's work through Man and Boy, and I liked his story telling style and his writing that I always reads his other books when I came across them.

This is another family story by Parson that I really enjoyed. His writing also makes it easy to follow the story.

This story is about the life of three sisters, Cat, Jessica and Megan. Cat, the oldest, is an independent career woman, singla and doesn't have any child planned in her life. Jessica, the second child, is married and have been trying to have a baby with her husband, but couldn't. Megan, the youngest, a doctor, single and is pregnant from her one night stand.

This book made me think that life does not turn out the way we want them to be.

In most society, we're brought up aspiring to be a wife and then mother and if we don't we're a failure. When we are young, we always think that life will go as we planned it. However, this book shows that things that happened in life is not always as we planned. Most of the time it's different from our plans.

If you like drama and family story, you should read this book.
