Mother Ship by Francesca Segal
'Heart-wrenching, heart-warming and heartfelt' Adam Kay, author of This is Going to HurtAfter her twin girls are born early, Francesca Segal finds herself keeping vigil by their side in hospital, all romantic expectations of new parenthood obliterated. Her gripping diary of those months combines the tenderness of a love poem with the compulsive pace of a thriller. As each day brings a fresh challenge for her and her babies, Francesca makes a temporary life among a band of mothers who are vivid, fearless and inspiring, taking care not only of their children but of one another.
'A beautiful memoir: wise, moving and profoundly humane' Elizabeth Day, author of How to Fail
