Baby Proof

Emily Griffin

A novel that explores the question: Is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?

Claudia Parr has everything going for her. A successful editor at a publishing house in Manhattan, she's also a devoted sister, aunt, and friend. Yet she's never wanted to become a mother--which she discovers is a major hurdle to marriage, something she desperately wants. Then she meets her soul mate Ben who, miraculously, feels the same way about parenthood. The two fall in love and marry, committed to one another and their life of adventure and discovery. All's well until one of them has a change of heart. Someone wants a baby after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things and there is no compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life and wagering everything to get it. And most of all, it's about the things we will--and won't--do for love.


  • Not the best

    Book's ok. Not Emily's best. Started very slowly. At first I thought I was in for an enitre book about a divorce. It did get better through the middle. Needed more of an ending. Main character needed to be more developed. She never really changed, gained insight, or admitted her wrongs. Not that pleased.

    I loved this book! It makes realize not everyone wants kids and how hard it be to find someone that doesn't either. But then the love story is great and they still have a connection.
  • Great but..

    This book was great as all of Emily's novels but I had a really hard time picturing Claudia. She was not described enough to put a vivid picture of her in my head.
  • Good read but...

    ...the ending was missing something.
