Infertility has robbed Emma of her self-esteem, self-image and self-respect. At almost 35 years old, she canít seem to get it together. Her beloved mother died several years earlier of lung cancer and her father is about to marry a young, fertile bimbo.
Her in-laws are flying in to see their darling Stevie-boy and Emma wonders how she'll survive their visit. She's at the end of her rope at a dead-end job. And she's sure Steveís late nights at work mean he's having an affair and is planning to leave her. There are many surprises, both humorous and poignant, in store for Emma in her journey through this chapter of her life.
