Quinn 'Q' Boothroyd is a successful young English lawyer married to the gorgeous Tom and living in New York. She's ticked off most of the boxes on her list of Things To Do Before Hitting Thirty and her life so far has been relatively painless. But when her doctor tells her she has to spend the last three months of her pregnancy lying in bed, Q is thrown into a tailspin by the idea that her social and professional life must come to a total stop.
Initially bored and frustrated, Q gradually finds herself re-examining her whole life - her marriage, relationships with family and friends, and her job. Indeed, the inertia of bed rest has some very surprising, funny and touching results . . .
