Rosie and Jonathon have been together for the past fifteen years, unmarried. Both characters are in their middle forty's and have a hippie/grad vibe lifestyle. Rosie worries about her grandmother Sophie who is eighty-eight years old. Jonathon has an obsession with teacups and when offered a position across the country, he jumps on it. Rosie, doubtful of her near future, decides to stay to look after her grandmother. Soon enough she's pregnant with Jonathon's child and maybe falling for her grandmother's at-home-care-taker, Tony. What's a 44 year old pregnant woman to do?
Overall, I loved this book. I had the hardest time putting it down. The ONLY thing I would change is the third person writing. I had a hard time relating to the main character. Eventually I did start caring for her, but I wish I cared for her sooner. If this was written in first person from Rosie's point of view, this would be a perfect five star book.
I have never really been a fan of women's fiction but after this novel, I plan to read more. I would recommend this to women who enjoy short chick-lit romances.
