Here is some info about the book...
With the runaway New York Times bestsellers, SOMETHING BORROWED (2004), SOMETHING BLUE (2005), and now BABY PROOF (2006), Emily Giffin has firmly established herself as one of publishing's brightest young stars.
BABY PROOF was an instant New York Times Bestseller and received praise from the nation's top publications. Giffin tells the story of Claudia Parr, a thirty-five-year-old book editor whose marriage to Ben seems ideal in almost every respect, particularly in their shared desire for a childfree life together. Their relationship is focused on fun, freedom and possibility, rather than parenthood and the life-changing responsibilities that come with it. All's well until Ben suddenly changes his mind and decides that he does want kids after all. This fundamental shift forces Claudia to reassess what is truly important to her and determine what she is willing to sacrifice in order to preserve the life she wants.
BABY PROOF is a witty, heartfelt story of what happens to the perfect couple when they unexpectedly find themselves at odds over the baby issue; and explores whether there is such a thing as a deal-breaker when it comes to true love.
Although BABY PROOF is at its core a love story, it is also an undeniably sharp social commentary about the last remaining taboo for women: it's okay to try to juggle children and a career; it's okay to be a stay-at-home mother ; but in a society that praises the virtue of motherhood above all else, what happens to a woman who chooses to forego having children altogether? And in an era when an increasing number of women are choosing to do just that, BABY PROOF is a novel that today's smart, independent women can relate to.
