The Wives of Bath by Wendy Holden
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


First-time parents and forbidden love...Two wildly different couples meet in an antenatal class and loathe each other on sight. Flashy Hugo and Amanda plan to five-star birthing experience with private hospitals and maternity nurses. Right-on Alice and Jake want a home delivery with whale music and towelling nappies. But baby Theo has barely arrived before Hugo and Amanda hit problems. In contrast to blissed-out-with-fatherhood Jake, Hugo fails miserably to bond with his son. Amanda, meanwhile, decides motherhood is boring. She's ticked the box and now wants her life and magazine career back. When Amanda leaves him in the lurch, horrified Hugo is left literally holding the baby with no idea even how to change a nappy. Rescue comes in the unexpected shape of politically correct, perfect-mum Alice. Despite initial mutual dislike and misunderstanding, she and Hugo fall madly in love. But as married parents they have everything to lose. Especially once Amanda and Jake discover the affair?.
