Marian Keyes long awaited latest is brilliant. It speaks to women of a certain age. All the recognisable yearnings, frustrations and dissatisfactions, of women over the age of forty, are hilariously portrayed in this wonderful page-turner of a novel. What will happen next, when out of the blue, Amy’s husband, Hugh, announces he’s heading overseas, for a six month “break”, from their ostensibly happy marriage?
The reader shouts out for Amy, as she copes with the aftermath of this devastating announcement. She’s the mother of three fabulous daughters, a frantically busy career woman, (with a set of attractive and interesting male work colleagues); the daughter of slightly mad parents, and she belongs to a sisterhood of friends, who can’t deal with the way she reacts to Hugh’s departure.
You empathise with Amy, as she begins to realise, she just might have had something to do with Hugh’s midlife crisis.
This book is perfect for a long weekend, or the holidays. It’s funny, uplifting, and true.
