Georgie met Hugh during her first year at university and knew that he was the man for her. Unfortunately, it took Hugh one marriage and two children to decide that she was the one for him. Georgie spent the intervening years transforming herself for the momentous occasion, but now she is no longer the svelte woman making a splash in advertising and living the high life in London because she's pregnant, moody, and, unforgivably, gaining weight. Her friends are falling by the wayside because they don't understand the vagaries of pregnancy, while her sympathy for Hugh's wife is increasing. Hugh, however, is not turning out to be the ideal domestic partner. His life continues to be the same while Georgie deals with the coming baby without much support. An array of interesting, very British characters adds to the flavor of the story, making for a Bridget Jones meets motherhood scenario in Parks' fun and funny ode to motherhood in modern London.
