In this witty and heartfelt debut, one womanâ€™s
unconventional journey to motherhood means learning to
embrace the unexpected
Even the prickliest cactus has its flowerâ€¦
For Susan Green, messy emotions donâ€™t fit into the equation
of her perfectly ordered life. She has a flat that is ideal
for one, a job that suits her passion for logic and an
â€śinterpersonal arrangementâ€ť that provides cultural and
other, more intimate, benefits. But suddenly confronted with
the loss of her mother and the news that she is about to
become a mother herself, Susanâ€™s greatest fear is realized.
She is losing control.
When she learns that her motherâ€™s will inexplicably favors
her indolent brother, Edward, Susanâ€™s already dismantled
world is sent flying into a tailspin. As Susanâ€™s due date
draws near and her family problems become increasingly
difficult to ignore, Susan finds help and self-discovery in
the most unlikely of places.
Featuring an endearing cast of characters and tremendous
heart, The Cactus is a poignant debut and a
delightful reminder that some things canâ€™t be explained by
