What to expect

“Impossible to put down, makes you laugh and cry, Sophie’s story is inspirational. It gives us so much hope and encouragement. I don’t think we would be where we are on our own journey without her advice.”

OLLIE LOCKE

“A read so twisty your heart pounds as you turn the pages.”


THE SUNDAY TIMES

Brave, funny and honest, columnist Sophie Beresiner takes us on her complex journey to parenthood and shows us that there’s more than one way to become a mother.

Sophie’s journey to motherhood began aged 30 with a cancer diagnosis that stole her fertility. Today, Sophie is older, wiser (and agonisingly excellent at hindsight), and somewhat battered. Through interminable cycles of hope and failure, her infertility story spanned three countries, five surrogates and a debt she’d rather not dwell on.

Part memoir, part manifesto, The Mother Project is the epic story of Sophie’s quest for happiness. Exploring the complexities, expectations and injustices faced by millions of women across the world, it is a book that is both personal and universal.

Critics Review

  • “This unputdownable story of hope, determination and what it takes to do the one thing most of us take for granted is a witty, inspiring read, perfect for your summer holidays. It’s about love, relationships and overcoming tricky situations with smart thinking.”
