'An inspiring and necessary book that challenges the narratives we set for our lives and reveals the beauty beyond them' CLEMENTINE FORD.

Alexandra Collier was a writer living in a light-filled Brooklyn brownstone in New York with the man she loved. But when she woke up to a ravenous hunger to have a baby that her partner didn't share, her life took a sharp turn.

She found herself back in Melbourne at 37, single, heartbroken and living with her parents.

Ally began dating with dedication, with sometimes hilarious and often soul-crushing results. Like many 30-something single women, though, she found that her reproductive timeline was rapidly outpacing her romantic life. So she began to explore a controversial option: conceiving a baby with donor sperm.

Insightful, moving and relatable, this is an uplifting memoir about taking hold of your own future.
