How many parents does it take to make a baby?

In the case of Rosalind Melrose Smithson it took four: one birth mother, one legal father, one interfering neighbor and one turkey baster filled with the defrosted essence of an anonymous donor.

But, as they say, the truth will out.  And what will our Rozzie do when she finds out that her dear old dad is, in fact, the 9th Earl of Dilberne?  All we know is that as a true Millennial, she will not take it lying down…

Sharp, insightful and full of Weldon’s trademark wit, this is a tale of family life, genetics and class that reflects the way we live our lives now.
