The phrase “late bloomer” feels like an insult and an indictment for people who live up to their capability later on than society’s expectations. This book disputes that life’s milestones must follow a linear narrative.

She was still an intern at 29 years old. She met her husband on Tinder in her late 30s, after most of her friends had already started families, some were married, and some were already in couples counseling.

She struggled with infertility for a long time and became a first-time mom at 41, enrolling in Mummy and Me classes where most mums were 5 or 10 years younger.

In her debut memoir, she explains the pressure women face and how you can solely define what a late-bloomer is.

To Wrap Things Up:
