Emma and James, Novel 1

Description:
Sinead Moriarty poured all her experiences in trying to get pregnant for the first time into her debut novel "The Baby Trail". Her heroine Emma Hamilton discovers that the road to conception is far from straightforward and her story is a moving and funny exploration of an experience so central to so many women's lives. The novel established Sinead as a major talent in the tradition of Marian Keyes. TicktockticktockTICKTOCK ...That's Emma Hamilton's biological clock you can hear. She wants a baby and she wants one NOW. But when Mother Nature refuses to play ball, Emma decides to give her a prod - or two. Soon her life is a roller-coaster of post-sex handstands (you can't argue with gravity), hormone-inducing (sanity-reducing) drugs and a veritable army of probing specialists (torturers, more like). It's out with the booze and spontaneous sex, in with green tea and ovulation tests. Emma couldn't have conceived that the road to pregnancy would turn into the mother of all journeys. But she's finding out that once you're on the baby trail, nothing is sacred - and one way or another, life will never be the same again ...Sinead Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. "The Baby Trail" was Sinead's first novel and her distinctive voice, and trademark mix of light and shade, announced that a fabulous new talent had arrived. Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: "A Perfect Match"; "From Here to Maternity"; "In My Sister's Shoes"; "Keeping It In the Family" (also titled "Whose Life Is It Anyway?); "Pieces of My Heart"; "Me and My Sisters" and, "This Child of Mine".

What the papers say:
Will make you laugh out loud one minute and wipe away a rogue tear the next Heat Moriarty's Emma has the wit of Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, mixed with the Murphy's Law luck of Bridget Jones Irish Independent Very funny, with a cast of wonderful supporting characters and an unpredictable ending. Marian Keyes, you have some competition RTE Guide The pace is fast and furious ... a real page-turner Irish Tatler Honest and funny U Magazine Lots of tears and even more laughs ... a confident debut Irish Times Funny - side-splittingly so, which is a difficult balance to strike considering the weight of the subject matter Ireland on Sunday Mix Bridget Jones with Charlotte from Sex and the City and you've got Emma, the charming heroine of The Baby Trail, and a funny, feisty guide through the realities and hilarities of twenty-first century baby-making. A terrific read ... -- Jennifer Weiner
