“Don’t you think it’s a bit odd we don’t live in the same place, same address, yet we’re married and trying to have a little one?”

Yes! This quote pretty much sums up how I felt about this story.

Honestly, I understand Sophie being in her early forties newly married and wanting to have a baby before that “clock” stops ticking and the chances to get pregnant naturally run out.

But, at the same time Sophie chooses to go to university to earn her MBA in a different country away from her husband for a year.

Then she decides to work in yet another country away from her husband all while trying IVF treatments and taking plane trips to see her husband during ovulation times.

At times I got frustrated with this book as I was left wondering half of the time about how a baby would fit into this lifestyle Sophie was living…at times it was all so hectic.

It wasn’t until the end of the book when things seemed to slow down for Sophie and she finally took a hard look at her life and considered other motherhood options that this story seemed to come together.
