Baby Proof

Baby Proof

From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes . . . a baby carriage? Isn't that what all women want?

Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It's about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was—and that there is no possible compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it's about the things we will do—and won't do—for love.

    I'm only a few pages in and I'm hooked. This woman is me, plain and simple. I'm sitting here wondering when Emily Griffin found the time to sit down and write a book all about me. I'm really hoping th...

    Yet another Emily Giffin novel, and I think it was okay for the most part. The thing I HATE about Giffin as a writer is she makes a really interesting, difficult scenario that makes you sympathize wit...

    This book annoyed me. I couldn't figure out why at first, and then I realized it - I don't agree with the author's message. The protagonist spends the whole book trying to get over her ex-husband who ...

    Emily Giffin has the literary capacity to create the most aggravating, unlikable characters in all of chick-lit that I positively can't stand and yet somehow by the end of the novel I am empathising w...

    Usually, I tend to shy away from books in the chick lit genre. When I saw "Baby Proof" on the shelf, I was instantly drawn to this book for some reason. After reading the book jacket, I knew this was ...

    D This book reminded me of why I don't like chick lit -- unrealistic expensive Manhattan lifestyles obsession with finding love partner. Anyway, this seemed more promising -- a woman finds a man who a...
