THEY ARE THE FURTHEST FROM ME, AND THE FURTHEST FROM ONE ANOTHER THAT THEY HAVE EVER BEEN. I DO NOT RECOGNISE THEM. THEY ARE OTHERWORLDLY IN THEIR STRANGENESS, AND OCEANIC IN THEIR BEAUTY... After her identical twin girls are born ten weeks prematurely, Francesca Segal finds herself sitting vigil in the "mother ship" of neonatal intensive care. Her gripping diary of those months brings to tender, evocative life the fresh challenges she and her babies face every day, while she makes a temporary life among a band of fearless mothers who take care not only of their children but also of one another. MOTHER SHIP is a hymn to the sustaining power of women's friendships, and a loving celebration of the two small girls - and their mother - who defy the odds.
