Review of "The Two of Us"

(taken from Simon and Schuster)

Nowadays there's pretty much two camps of young couple, and they're separated by their reaction to a little positive sign on a certain test. There's the "eeeek we're having a baby" and the "oh god WHY? What are we gonna do now?!". So, what happens when nineteen days into a sexathon of a relationship your 40-ish year old girlfriend gets pregnant ... a bit of both?

Fisher and Ivy just want a simple relationship filled with lots of fun. Fisher's almost certain that Ivy's the one. That is, until she starts acting cold towards him. Thinking he's committed some kind of horrendous faux pas, Fisher wants to do anything he can to win her back. However, when she announces her pregnancy, will their budding relationship be able to last?

This one was a bit of a tear-jerker I have to say. As Ivy's pregnancy progresses, us readers are witness to all the highs and lows of the upcoming birth of Ivy and Fisher's twins, as well as their relationship in itself. However, when they lose one of the babies a couple of weeks before the due date, and have to say goodbye to one stillborn twin whilst learning to love the other we really get to see just how far human emotional pain and the ability to recover from it can be stretched.

If you like whirlwind romances, and are looking for something with a little more depth in, I would highly recommend The Two of Us.

Have you read it? What did you think?
