A deliciously hilarious, honest and heartfelt portrayal of modern-day motherhood and the saving grace of female friendship.

Grace Harkness looks like she has it all - two beautiful children, four cookbooks under her belt and an idyllic beachside home #blessed. But add another baby on the way (oops), a spouse that is nowhere to be seen and a relentless list of things she 'should' be doing, and Grace is starting to unravel.

When the madness of modern-day motherhood finally pushes her to the brink, Grace and her friends decide to ditch the men in their lives, move in together and create a 'mummune' - sharing the load of chores, school pick-ups/drop-offs and endless Life Admin. The new set-up seems like a dream, but is life in this utopian village all it's cracked up to be?

'I was utterly and overwhelmingly hooked to every single brilliant, funny, sharp, gorgeously written page.' Ceridwen Dovey, author of Life After Truth

'Baths will overflow, chops burn, washing languish in the machine and children delight in extra screen time while we finish this funny, comforting, truly original book, finding ourselves on every page.' Meg Mason, author of Sorrow and Bliss

'Tori Haschka's Grace Under Pressure is a page-turning and heart-warming (even mouth-watering!) story underscoring the importance of solidarity among women amidst the daily challenges of modern living.
