Product description

Amy’s life has never gone according to plan. She’s had one divorce, three daughters and now a second husband who wants a break. Is this what a modern marriage means - taking a break from your family? Off goes Hugh with his newly purchased rucksack while Amy adapts to life as a single, albeit married mother. As usual, Marian treats her readers as her best friends and delivers truly satisfying stories. Prepare to get totally involved in the lives of her characters – you’ll find yourself really rooting for them.
Recommended by Noelle Grace, Dubray Kilkenny

At 44 Amy O'Connell thinks she's seen, heard or done it all. Until her husband Hugh announces he needs a break - from her. He is going backpacking for six months round Asia where he can do what he wants - and this is the scary bit - with anyone he wants. 'WTAF?' thinks Amy. What's she to do? Stay loyal to disloyal Hugh? Allow her ex-husband back into her life? Run away herself? And what about the children? A lot can happen in six months, will Hugh return as the same man? And will she still be the same woman there waiting for him?
