Theatrical agent Letty Summers wants a baby. The catch? Her partner has just dumped her. The singles scene is leaving her cold - too many badly cut suits and scuffed shoes. But, at thirty-five, her time is running out.
Her best friend, Jules, knows lots of guys. However, finding a sperm donor isn't easy. The likely prospects either don't want kids, want kids with someone 'artistic', carry the gene for a terrible hereditary disease, or are downright weird. And Letty's efforts at Weekly Weighers, held in the local angling hall, are also feeling like a waste of time.
Then Robert Darling arrives. Unattached, gay, gorgeous, and a knitter, he's everything she's looking for. Little does she know that her life is about to enter free fall, and nothing will ever be the same.
