I have just finished this book, and enjoyed every page. As a mother of two small boys I don't read as much as I would like to, yet this was such a page turner I managed to fit it into a day or so in snatched moments...quite an achievement.
Somehow Williams manages to capture almost every insight I had thought was my own: on being a mother, other mothers, nights with a new baby, breastfeeding, the shock of new motherhood, the insecurities relating to loss of identity, libido and multiple other issues. Despite my own circumstances and habitat (both social and geographical) being very different from those of the protaganist, Amy, I identified with her from the first page.
This is a must-read for all pregnant women and anyone who is or ever aspires to being a mother. It might be a helpful read for fathers too.
