Book Description

March 5 2007
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. Heart-warming, up-lifting, tear-jerking and lovely, THE YORKSHIRE PUDDING CLUB is the story of how three women find themselves empowered by unexpected pregnancy. How it revitalises one woman's tired marriage, strengthens another's belief in herself and brings love and warmth to a cold and empty life.

About the Author

Five-foot-tall Milly Johnson is a half Barnsley, half Glaswegian writer of greetings cards, novels and shopping lists featuring gin and buns. When not writing she is either reading, learning Italian, mixing with the Yorkshire glitterati, getting up the council's nose about a Dodworth Road Pedestrian Crossing or ironing school clothes. She lives with her two boys and a quartet of mad animals near her Mam and Dad in the middle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

What can I say - just that this book made me laugh and cry all weekend and I felt so empty when I'd finished it. One of the sweetest books I've read in a long time - girly and yet too grown up and deep to be called 'chick-lit'. Heartily recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely read! Beware of British terms though! April 15 2010
By Lydia - Novel Escapes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This was another lovely read by Milly Johnson. It was her first novel and I enjoyed it just as much as A Spring Affair which I happened to read first. I did find the Yorkshire Pudding Club didn't grab me in the beginning in the same manner as A Spring Affair, but regardless, I enjoyed loved this chick lit tale and can't recommend her novels enough.

I laughed and cried and noticed the characteristic Milly Johnson smile that appears on my face as I read her novels. It's a dopey, silly, happy grin that is plastered on my face for chunks of her books and it's such a lovely feeling! This grin alternates with sharp intakes of breath at times though because her chick lit is not always so light and fluffy and has heavy subjects thrown into the mix, but I think this makes me love her stories even more.

The characters Milly Johnson creates are so well developed and The Yorkshire Pudding Club was no exception. I cared about all the women and wanted happy endings for all of them. There were times I wanted to give some of them a good shake, but that just shows how much I wanted them to get their act together! Her stories move along at a perfect pace, not too slow or fast and I enjoyed how the women played off each other and how each one had such a different story and attitude towards pregnancy.

The only reason I gave it a less than perfect rating was that there were a few reasons it took me a while to get into this book. First, the story is about three friends and alternates from each one's perspective so it takes a while to get into. Fine, that's understandable, but I also had a hard time with all the characters naïve understanding about early pregnancy symptoms (this could just be due to my over-education of the subject though).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful April 29 2009

Ok, it's not often that you find a chick-lit book you find impossible to put down! And as you may see from my other comments here I'm not always a fan, but this is a great book in its genre, the characters believable and with substance (at least for a chick-lit)... and the plot (though not very complicated) is fun and endearing. Enjoy!
