About Along Came A Stork
Every young girl dreams of meeting Prince Charming, but what if the prince turns into the frog instead of the other way around? Diana Kay is thirty years old, single and pregnant. A glamorous socialite, she has just landed her dream job on TV as a dating guru. But how can she advise women on their struggling love lives when she's hiding her own pregnancy? And why has the baby's father, who swore he'd love her forever, decided instead to vanish off the face of the earth? Terrified of losing her television job, Diana watches her bump grow bigger by the day. How long can she keep pretending she's developed a sudden fondness for jam doughnuts? When it all becomes too much, she flees to the West of Ireland in search of peace and privacy. Instead, she stumbles upon a dark family secret. Diana soon forgets her own personal turmoil as she delves into the past. But is it really a good idea to resurrect a shocking scandal that has been so firmly swept under the family rug?
