I read Jessica Hepburn's first book 'The Pursuit of Motherhood' which chronicled the many years and multiple rounds of IVF she undertook in her quest to have a baby. This book follows what she did next. For anyone who has gone through IVF and infertility it's a must read, however Jessica considers the subject of motherhood and what makes us happy in a broad way that I think could appeal to anyone who is interested in pondering these fundamental questions. She also teams this with her training to swim the channel and the pain, endurance and sometimes joy she experiences along the way. I think anyone can appreciate the grit and determination needed to undertake this huge feat of physical and mental endurance and will be cheering her along until the end. A truly inspirational story, beautifully written and left me with a lump in my throat many times. A must read which I will be recommending to friends and family.

Great listen. A warm but heart breaking tale of love, friendship and resilience. I couldn't stop listening.

I'd already seen the film a few years ago but still loved the book and couldn't stop listening. It's a great story and the descriptions of the landscapes make you feel like you're there.

Great book. Definitely worth a listen.

The book really hits on the current obsession with social media and showing the 'best' side of your life. It's very funny and I think will hit a cord with women around their late 20's and early 30's, especially the scenes from the cringey weddings and baby shower. Would definitely recommend for an entertaining but thought provoking listen.
