Rose and Johnny are a modern couple, a career couple.
But suddenly - unexpectedly - Johnny's desire for commitment and a child brings them to an abrupt and painful crossroads.
To save their relationship Rose, an ambitious photographer still struggling for recognition, reluctantly concedes - only to discover that achieving parenthood is far harder than either of them had bargained on.
Unflinchingly honest, ONE LIFE is a heart-stoppingly poignant and compelling exploration of womanhood and its most basic compulsion; the desire for children.

The heroine' husband wants a baby so she reluctantly agrees, but when it becomes clear that they need IVF, she becomes obessessed with the desire to have a child. Compelling and simply written, it draws you in and makes you understand.
