His Best Friend's Baby
She needs a little favour…
Polly Martin has given up on love, but not on becoming a mother. She returns briefly to her hometown of Wirralong to proposition her childhood best friend, Seth Ramsay, confident he’ll agree to be her IVF donor.
Seth walks out of their reunion dinner date after Polly’s clinical and unemotional proposal. How could she think he was the type of man who wouldn’t take an ongoing interest in his child? A year later, still haunted by Polly’s question, he seeks her out in Melbourne and finds her heavily pregnant, unemployed, and barely making ends meet. Seth invites Polly back to Wirralong for a weekend only to end up delivering her baby girl early and finding himself more charmed than he could have imagined.
As Polly and her newborn recover at Seth’s house, their friendship is back on, but Seth wants more. He feels like he’s finally within reach of his dream when the town gossips send Polly fleeing home. And now Polly must ask herself searching questions, including where her new future lies.
The love of the outback Australia
Loved reading this book, there’s just something special about reading these books.The country towns, community and friendships. Australia is a vast amazing country..
Like a warm hug.
I was so pleased to read an ARC of Barbara Hannay’s latest book. I loved it.
As usual Barbara did not disappoint with this lovely story which starts off a with a platonic, life long friendship between Seth and Polly which develops into so much more. It’s a story of friendship, love, loss grief but it becomes a story of hope and community. Barbara’s books are like a big warm hug and I’m looking forward to the next instalment after His Best Friend’s Baby.
