A read for tears and laughter!,
This review is from: Accidentally on Purpose: A one-night stand, my unplanned pregnancy, and loving the best mistake I ever made (Paperback)
I read this book from cover to cover on one long haul flight. I laughed and cried so much I think the other passengers thought I was having a breakdown!
Pushing 40, Mary's ovaries are sounding a five bell alarm. After enduring an evening with a group of smug marrieds and their kids Mary picks up a cute young guy in a bar. A few weeks later she tracks him down and when she tells him they are soon to be parents, his reaction surprises her. "Great he says 'Everyone want kids don't they?"
Mary's writing is sassy, crisp and witty and her descriptions of trying to raise not just a baby but his Dad to boot, are hilarious.
But it was Mary's accounts of her elderly parent's demise and eventual deaths, that had me sobbing.
don't be put off by the slightly girlie cover, this is a grown up book and a magical read.
