    Good read with ups and downs

    This is a lovely romance between Karen and Elliott. The story starts with their joint 40th birthday party and romps along from there for a year. The regained independence of Karen makes her a ideal partner for Elliott as he undertakes his stressful work with children. Karen's desire for her own child is the link throughout the story and is well written with great feeling. Although in parts this is sad the love and fun shine through. The happy ending is there but not before some serious issues have been resolved. Open some chocolate and enjoy the read.

    Warm, encouraging, and poignant!

    It’s My Birthday is a mature, romantic tale that takes us into the life of Karen as she meanders through all sorts of highs and lows, from struggling with infertility, turning forty, being newly divorced, a blossoming new romance, and an ongoing, deep-seated desire to become a mother. The writing is fluid and sincere. The characters are multilayered, compassionate, and authentic. And the plot is a heartfelt journey of hope, heartbreak, friendship, family, parenthood, determination, independence, and happiness. Overall, I would have to say that It’s My Birthday is a sweet, engaging, heartwarming novel that reminds you to always grab life by the horns no matter your age and to always follow your heart.

    Certainly heartwarming.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book - I read it all in one evening! The story is about Karen, a just 40 year old teacher, recovering from a fairly traumatic marriage breakup, who meets Elliot - same age, and a Child Counsellor, with an 18 yr old daughter Sophie who he has brought up on his own. There was very little extraneous description to detract from the flow of the story, and all the characters are likeable (even the ex to a certain extent), Karen was very believable and I felt some sympathy with her situation, with Elliot being a most suitable hero as far as I am concerned. I have to say the ending was perhaps a bit predictable, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a good read.
