    Thank you to netgalley for my copy in exchange for a review I have never read a Jane Asher book so I was intrigued to see that this is a reprint from 1996 and was her debut novelJuliet and Michael are married with good careers but do want children After 9 years of marriage they decide to try harder to have a baby and start off by going down the ovulation testing route This however doesn’t work and performing to order somewhat kills the passionJuliet and Michael attempt IVF which is the start of Juliet’s mental declineI was fascinated to see how this would end but unfortunately I found it too far fetched and found some of the characters damn right annoying Not for me

    I really liked the idea of this storyline and indeed it was intriguing and heartbreaking when thinking of the real life scenarios couples go through to concieve Michael and Harriet are not really happy together when they embark on IVF treatment and Harriet has a difficult relationship both with her mother and even her best friend It is not therefore the best foundation to start with However couples do get lulled into a sense that everything would be okay if only they could have a baby and so I didn't find their going ahead with the procedure unrealistic However as things go from bad to much worse I had the feeling that the reactions of some of the characters Harriets mother in particular were not true to themselves This very straightlaced insistent woman did not demand to see her daughter when the chips were downThe plot was uite intricate but for me I think this whole story would have worked much better if the author had played it chronolgically I could see that by introducing the tension early she let the reader in on awful events further down the line but in this case a slow build up as Harriet's mental health detiorated might have been a better plan

    I remember reading this book many years ago and it left a lasting impression I was at the time having similar problems and could relate to some of the feelings of the main character

    The longing by Jane Asher All she wanted was a baby Was that so much to ask? A baby to nourish in her body to give birth with pain and pleasure to adore A baby to suckle and care for to clean and cuddle and comfort A baby to make her whole and complete But her womb was empty and its emptiness filled her days and her nights invaded her dreams determined every waking thought A baby All she wanted was a baby This was a good read with likeable characters 4

    Found it a bit boring and drawn out even though the topic should be fascinating Pretty disappointed in this read to be honest expected better

    This is a reprint from 1996 and it shows I found the story old fashioned and dated There are much much better books to buy

    A compulsive and topical contemporary story of obsession in which a happily married educated middle class woman is driven to snatch a stranger's baby from its pram All she wanted was a baby Was that so much to ask? A baby to nourish in her body to give birth wi
