This is a review of the book 'From here to maternity' by Sinead Morarty, the third book in a series following a couple called Emma and James and their journey to start a family. In the third book, their addoption of a Russian baby Yuri is completed whilst Emma discovers she is pregnanty too. I love a happy ending!

I had already read 'The Baby trail' and 'Perfect Match' by Sinead Moriarty where she tells of James and Emma Hamilton's quest to start a family.

Having enjoyed the other two books very much, I was very keen to read this one although I also had a worrying niggle that, like many sequels, it would not live up to my expectations. In fact could this be one book too many about this ... Read the complete review
