BABY PROOF

Not surprisingly, Giffin's third novel, BABY PROOF (St. Martin's Press; June 13, 2006), is being touted as one of the biggest releases of the summer. BABY PROOF tells the story of Claudia Parr, a thirty-five-year-old book editor whose marriage to Ben seems ideal in almost every respect, particularly in their shared desire for a childfree life together. Theirs is a relationship focused on fun, freedom and possibility, rather than parenthood and the life-changing responsibilities that come with it. All's well until Ben suddenly changes his mind and decides that he does want kids after all. This fundamental shift forces Claudia to reassess what is truly important to her and determine what she is willing to sacrifice in order to preserve the life she wants. BABY PROOF is a witty, heartfelt story of what happens to the perfect couple when they unexpectedly find themselves at odds over the baby issue -- and explores whether there is such a thing as a deal-breaker when it comes to true love.
