Larger than Life: Unabridged edition

By Adele Parks, Read by Emily Barber


From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Just My Luck and Both Of You, comes an unputdownable novel about discovering what it truly means to find the love of your life…

Georgina has been in love with Hugh since she was eighteen. Tall, handsome and career driven, he’s everything she ever wanted – but totally out of her league. Oh, and married.

Over the years, Georgina transformed herself into what she hoped Hugh would see as the ideal woman. And it paid off. At thirty-two, she now has the career, the body, and at last, the man she’s always desired.

But her dream come true hits shaky ground when she falls pregnant. Already-father-of-two Hugh isn’t overjoyed, and as Georgina grows bigger, so does the distance between them.

And with the clock ticking to her baby’s arrival, Georgina has to ask herself – who is the real love of her life?
