Some Body to Love: A Family Story

Available

Description

'A treatise on empathy and grace in extraordinary circumstances' Jojo Moyes

What does it mean to be a woman? To live in a woman's body?

Alexandra Heminsley thought she knew, but then her world turned inside out. Having just resurfaced from fertility issues, childbirth and early parenthood, she was told her then-husband was going to transition.

Some Body to Love is Alex's profoundly open-hearted memoir about losing a partner but gaining a best friend, and together bringing up a baby in a changing world. By baring her own unique scars, Heminsley makes a vital manifesto on the unifying resilience that can be found in modern motherhood.
