LoveReading Expert Review of The Yorkshire Pudding Club

A novel of female friendship, charming and unexpectedly switching life’s ambitions along the way. Three friends all become pregnant at about the same time but react to the inevitable very differently. It’s a lovely, astute, uplifting read. A joy.

The Yorkshire Pudding Club Synopsis

From the Sunday Times bestseller comes a heartwarming and uplifting story of how three women find themselves empowered by unexpected pregnancies 'Every time you discover a new Milly book, it's like finding a pot of gold' heat Three South Yorkshire friends, all on the cusp of 40, fall pregnant at the same time following a visit to an ancient fertility symbol. For Helen, it's a dream come true, although her husband is not as thrilled about it as she had hoped. Not only wrestling with painful ghosts of the past, Helen has to deal with the fact that her outwardly perfect marriage is crumbling before her eyes. For Janey, it is an unmitigated disaster as she has just been offered the career break of a life-time. And she has no idea either how it could possibly have happened, seeing as she and her ecstatic husband George were always so careful over contraception. For Elizabeth, it is mind-numbing, because she knows people like her shouldn't have children. Damaged by her dysfunctional childhood and emotionally lost, she not only has to contend with carrying a child she doubts she can ever love, but she also has to deal with the return to her life of a man whose love she must deny herself. Praise for Milly Johnson: 'A glorious, heartfelt novel' Rowan Coleman 'Absolutely loved it. Milly's writing is like getting a big hug with just the right amount of bite underneath. I was rooting for Bonnie from the start' Jane Fallon 'Bursting with warmth and joie de vivre' Jill Mansell 'Warm, optimistic and romantic' Katie Fforde
