"I am a woman in the prime of my life, I want everything, passionate love, close friendships, exciting work, exotic trips and a child. But doesn't come easy, first of all, I simply don't fall pregnant and when I do fall pregnant then my pregnancies end in miscarriages. I try standing on my head and when that doesn't help. I try in vitro fertilization. All around me bellies are bulging offensively. Must I resign myself to my failure, must I keep going? Nothing seems to go right until a dramatic event breaks the downward spiral".

This is a warm and moving reflection by a woman on her desire to have a child. It is also a story of the love, ambitions and dilemmas of a woman of our time written in a sparkling style.
