Three South Yorkshire friends, all on the cusp of 40, fall pregnant at the same time following a visit to an ancient fertility symbol. For Helen, it's a dream come true, although her husband is not as thrilled about it as she had hoped. Not only wrestling with painful ghosts of the past, Helen has to deal with the fact that her outwardly perfect marriage is crumbling before her eyes. For Janey, it is an unmitigated disaster as she has just been offered the career break of a life-time. And she has no idea either how it could possibly have happened, seeing as she and her ecstatic husband George were always so careful over contraception. For Elizabeth, it is mind-numbing, because she knows people like her shouldn't have children. Damaged by her dysfunctional childhood and emotionally lost, she not only has to contend with carrying a child she doubts she can ever love, but she also has to deal with the return to her life of a man whose love she must deny herself.

It is a refresher, a reference book and a workbook for teachers of English. It is also for teachers handling subjects other than English in schools and colleges. The book centres round the idea that grammar paves the way for smooth and accurate communication, and aims to strike a balance between conventional concepts and latter-day developments, and between descriptive grammar and grammar in use. Each chapter of the book begins by describing the forms of the grammatical class or category it deals with. It then presents a variety of illustrative examples. Finally, it explains the communicative uses of the forms and the situations in which they are typically used. A distinct feature of the book is that it deals with both spoken and written grammar, with greater emphasis on the written mode.
