Product description

Review

The Cactus will be compared to Gail Honeyman's Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine...there is terrible poignancy (Patricia Nicol The Sunday Times)

Legal battles, lapses of logic and the joys and fears of motherhood are explored in this astute, funny and moving novel of a woman learning how to let go (Daily Mail)

'Funny, compelling, well-written...for fans of Marian Keyes who demand a bit of grit in their comic writing' (Emerald Street)

Fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine will love The Cactus ... wonderfully funny and astute (Sarra Manning Red)

The trend for "up lit" continues to make its mark, in titles including Sarah Haywood's debut The Cactus (rigid, lonely-but-doesn't-realise woman in her 40s falls pregnant and is forced to make connections; great cover) (Alison Flood The Bookseller)

Hilarious and endearing ... anchored by the splendid character of Susan (Publisher's Weekly)

This book is charming and easy to read, the perfect tonic to this absurdly grey February (The Pool)

Susan Green is an independent and endearingly prickly woman whose life is spiralling out of control. You're gonna love her. (Marie Claire AUS)

An original, engaging and totally believable character (Graeme Simsion)

If, like me, you never stopped to think what a child born of The Rosie Project's Don Tillman and Bridget Jones might be like, there's one way to find out. Read Sarah Haywood's The Cactus. Meet Susan Green. She doesn't understand how funny she is, which is delicious. (Julia Claiborne Johnson, author of BE FRANK WITH ME)

Book Description

Susan Green doesn't like surprises - she likes to be in control. But at 45 and unexpectedly pregnant her perfect life starts to unravel, and real life in all its messiness shows her that it's never too late to bloom.
