Grace Harkness looks like she has it all - two beautiful children, four cookbooks under her belt and an idyllic beachside home #blessed. But add another baby on the way (oops), a spouse that is nowhere to be seen and a relentless list of things she ‘should' be doing, and Grace is starting to unravel.
When the madness of modern-day motherhood finally pushes her to the brink, Grace and her friends decide to ditch the men in their lives, move in together and create a ‘mummune' - sharing the load of chores, school pick-ups/drop-offs and endless Life Admin.
The new set-up seems like a dream, but is life in this utopian village all it's cracked up to be?Grace Under Pressure is a deliciously hilarious, honest and heartfelt portrayal of modern-day motherhood and the saving grace of female friendship. ‘Tori Haschka has done a superb job of capturing the struggles, the fears and the loneliness of motherhood, but also the camaraderie, strength and vital importance of female friendship. It's a modern,clever and heartrending read.' Nicola Moriarty ‘I was utterly and overwhelmingly hooked to every single brilliant, funny, sharp, gorgeously written page.' Ceridwen Dovey
