Overview of The Baby Trail

Meet Emma Hamilton. She's thirty-three, has a great husband, and loves her life. It's the perfect time to start a family!

Emma has it all mapped out: Go off the pill in December, have sex, get pregnant by January, have the baby in September. And with the help of a personal trainer, Emma figures she'll be back in shape by Christmas. Happy New Year!

But when three months of candle-scented sex fails to produce the desired result, Emma's life becomes a rollercoaster of post-coital handstands, hormone inducing (a.k.a. sanity reducing) drugs, and a veritable army of fertility specialists. Emma and James try everything, from ovulation kits to in-vitro, but all their carefully laid plans seem to go south — in direct proportion to Emma's plummeting self-esteem. And just when Emma feels she's alienated everyone in her life — her twice-pregnant confidante, her singleton friend, even her own husband — events take a ninety-degree turn that will have unforeseen consequences for everyone.

With The Baby Trail Sinead Moriarty brings a wicked sense of humor to a subject of fevered concern for women today. Sizzlingly funny yet deeply moving, this novel is sure to ring true for women who can hear the tick-tock of their own biological clocks.
