This book was quite a difficult book for me to read at this time but also proved impossible to put down. The story is fairly simple, journalists Sally and Tony met while working in Cairo and become lovers but very soon into their relationship Tony is called back to England and Sally discovers she is pregnant. They marry and Sally, an American, finds her new life in England to be very different to how she pictured it. Problems with her pregnancy lead to a horrific birth, a sick child, postnatal depression and a full on battle with the English legal system amid a messy divorce. I was in turn very upset and very angry about the treatment Sally receives from everyone and the incompetance of the so-called professionals who ignore her need for reassurance, answers and help. I'd recommend this book but it isn't an easy read and it really brings home to you how scary it must be to feel so alone and abandoned in a foreign place.
