Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I am an enormous fan of Wendy, she’s so good at gently poking fun at the middle-classes, writes in a deliciously infectious style and is the perfect feel-good, romantic comedy queen. This looks at the many pitfalls of child bearing, amusing and touching, I loved it.

Comparison: Julian Fellowes, Alison Pearson, Jane Green.
Similar this month: Jane Blanchard, Melissa Hill.

If you like Wendy Holden you might also like to read books by Julian Fellowes, Allison Pearson and Mhairi McFarlane.

Synopsis

The Wives of Bath by Wendy Holden

A tale of yummy mummies with flat brown tummies… Four parents-to-be seem ante-natally sorted. Flash Hugo and Amanda have booked a chic private clinic and royal maternity nurse. Right-on Jake and Alice want an all-natural home birth with whale music and tree-hugging nappies. But nothing goes quite to plan. Amanda finds motherhood less glam than the stars make it look and disappears back to her career. Which leaves Hugo with the child and without a clue what to do. Alice has problems too. Bringing up baby to Jake’s eco-fascist standards means home-made organic everything and a recycled cardboard cot. Will nappiness bring happiness to anybody? Not before bedhopping spouses, beastly bosses and bitchy nursery mothers have all done their dreadful worst…
