Some Body To Love

Some Body To Love

By Alexandra Heminsley



'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. ______________________ Praise for Some Body to Love : 'Insightful and wise, generous and kind' David Nicholls 'A brave, thoughtful and timely book' Naomi Alderman 'A testament to how family and love can be whatever shape we want them to be' Red 'It took my breath away' Bryony Gordon 'A book with a wild, deep, joyous, tender love of people at its heart' Emma Jane Unsworth
