Eve Glace – co-owner of the theme park Winterworld – is having a baby and her due date is a perfectly timed 25th December. And she’s decided that she and her husband Jacques should renew their wedding vows with all the pomp that was missing the first time. But growing problems at Winterworld keep distracting them …

Annie Pandoro and her husband Joe own a small Christmas cracker factory, and are well set up and happy together despite life never blessing them with a much-wanted child. But when Annie finds that the changes happening to her body aren’t typical of the menopause but pregnancy, her joy is uncontainable.

Palma Collins has agreed to act as a surrogate, hoping the money will get her out of the gutter in which she finds herself. But when the couple she is helping split up, is she going to be left carrying a baby she never intended to keep?

Annie, Palma and Eve all meet at the ‘Christmas Pudding Club’, a new directive started by a forward-thinking young doctor to help mums-to-be mingle and share their pregnancy journeys. Will this group help each other to find love, contentment and peace as Christmas approaches?

My Thoughts:

When tackling sensitive issues you can always rely on Milly to deliver. There are sensitive and relatable issues in the story that had me in tears. Not being a mother myself I can’t understand what these women go through but I have a really good idea. I like the idea of the Christmas pudding club which the doctor comes up with, I still hope that we meet up with these ladies again in another book. They all have their own stories but fate brings them together in this heartwarming and emotional read.

I just wanted to say if you look in the front cover of the paperback, you will see ECHOES IN AN EMPTYROOM has been quoted. This is much appreciated. Thank you.
