Synopsis

The Two Week Wait by Sarah Rayner

'A topical subject treated with insight and care that makes for a wholly absorbing story ...will prompt a tear or two' Easy Living What if the thing you most longed for was resting on a two week wait?

After a health scare, Brighton-based Lou learns that her time to have a baby is running out. She can't imagine a future without children, but her partner doesn't seem to feel the same way. Meanwhile, up in Yorkshire, Cath is longing to start a family with her husband, Rich. No one would be happier to have a child than Rich, but Cath is infertile. Could these two women help each other out?
