Five years of gruelling IVF still haven't brought Pamela and Dave the baby they long for. Their marriage is now so rocky, they need hiking boots and crampons just to negotiate dinner. So they probably shouldn't be moving out of London for office-bound softie Dave to follow his dream of running an organic strawberry farm. Especially as out there in the countryside is devastatingly handsome farmer, Lachlan Murray. While Dave takes up chanting and becomes obsessed with manure, Pamela wonders if she should escape to Lachlan's Land Rover. Although there's Lachlan's wife, Rosie, to consider. Her London friends think she's gone insane, but they don't know just how far Pamela is prepared to go for a baby.
