In this witty and heartfelt debut, one woman’s
unconventional journey to motherhood means learning to
embrace the unexpected
Even the prickliest cactus has its flower…
For Susan Green, messy emotions don’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
“interpersonal arrangement” 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, Susan’s greatest fear is realized.
She is losing control.
When she learns that her mother’s will inexplicably favors
her indolent brother, Edward, Susan’s already dismantled
world is sent flying into a tailspin. As Susan’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 can’t be explained by
