From the best-selling author of Cents & Sensibility, Pants on Fire, and Mad About the Boy (all published in audio by Bolinda).

Maggie Alderson brings her deep understanding of the human heart to this new novel about the compromises we make in life, and about those rare moments of grace when we decide to risk everything for the chance to be truly, madly and deeply happy.

Amelia Bradlow seems to have everything she needs to be happy - a handsome husband, a beautiful home, money, good looks and a glamour job. Everything, that is, except the thing she wants most - a baby. Ed, her husband, is funny, affectionate and sophisticated but simply not interested in parenthood. He likes his life neat and tidy. And he likes having a wife who attends solely to his needs.

As she approaches 37, Amelia is faced with a life-changing decision, aided and abetted by Kiki, her hopelessly disorganised but ridiculously rich friend. Should Amelia stay in her nearly happy marriage, or expose herself to the vagaries of single life and the distant possibility of meeting someone who wants to start a family?

    " I loved this book addressing a modern dilemma. A marriage where one partner wants a baby and the other doesn't. Everything about the marriage is great except for this. Amelia is almost 37. The book is humorous and yet confronts the issue and the emotions involved. looked forward to reading it each night. "

    " This book was my first introduction to 'Chick Lit' and I absolutely loved it and couldn't put it down!!! It was witty, romantic, sad, funny. All the things you could want in a good book. It really makes you think about the choices you make in your life and the compromises we make for the ones we love and if we should settle for something because life is comfortable or start over and have the opportunity to be truly content.

    " As chick lit goes, How To Break Your Own Heart isn't bad, but neither is it particularly good. I'm a bit of a fan of Maggie Alderson but she's definitely written better. The story here come to an unsatisfactory conclusion at much too swift a pace. However, it started well and I found myself attached to the main character early on. The sex scenes are better than a fade-to-black, but decidedly average in the grand scheme of sex scenes. Overall I would say that this novel is a good choice if you like Maggie Alderson's fashion-focused novels, but otherwise there's better chick lit out there that might be a better option. "

    " A good read. Captures the dilemma many women face as they approach 40 and realise that time is running out and they must face that life-changing decision as to whether they really want to have children. "
