Mary Pols had always wanted children, but Mr Right had never come along. Then one night she met a guy. Cute. Much younger. Definitely unsuitable. But she went home with him anyway. What was the worst that could happen?
Well, nine months later she was going to find out . . .
As time unfolds, Mary's problems seem to grow as rapidly as her bump. Money. Childcare. How to tell her large, respectable family (especially her dad). Above all, what is she to do about the baby's father? He's sexy but hopeless – almost as much of a boy as her baby to be.
Accidentally on Purpose is a funny, heart-warming true story about becoming a mother, finding happiness in the unexpected and compromising in the name of love.
