A moving novel, with intelligent and compassionate insight into post-natal depression and thecomplexities of relationships.

'When Roberta falls pregnant her whole family is filled with joy.'

Fallen is not exactly how Roberta would describe it, for she and Paul have planned the baby and it has been conceived at exactly the time that they chose. But the birth itself is not as anyone chooses and the circles that radiate from this crisis affect everyone involved and change Roberta's life, in particular, for ever.

Moving & perceptive, full of intelligence and compassionate insights into the complexities of human relationships, this is a fine novel from one of New Zealand's best writers.

'In her craft of her storytelling and in her compassionate gutsy tough expression of female experience, she is the best we have.' - NZ Listener
