Sarah Broadhurst's view...
To have or to have not, baby or no baby? Tony Parsons tackles the burning question from the different points of view of three couples and discovers Mother Nature can be one hell of a bitch! Heartwarming, sensitive and oh so true, this is modern living to a tee.
Family Way by Tony Parsons
IT SHOULD BE THE MOST NATURAL THING IN THE WORLD
Paulo loves Jessica. He thinks that they are complete - a family of two. But Jessica can't be happy until she has a baby, and the baby stubbornly refuses to come. Can a man and a woman ever really be a family?
Megan doesn't love her boyfriend anymore. After a one-night stand, she finds that even a trainee doctor can slip up on family planning. Should you bring a child into the world if you don't love its father?
Cat loves her life. After bringing up her two youngest sisters, all she craves is freedom. Her older boyfriend has done the family thing before and is in no rush to do it all again. But can a modern woman really find true happiness without ever being in the family way?
Three sisters. Three couples. Two pregnancies. Six men and women struggling with sex, love and the meaning of family.
