Amy O’Connell is living your typical modern life – harried, overfull and totally stressed out (more-than-occasional glasses of wine notwithstanding).
When her husband of many years announces he wants a six-month break from their marriage, PR high-flyer Amy is devastated. She is then determined she should have her fun too.
Novels about women forced to start their lives again in middle age are rather thin on the ground. So thank goodness for this warm, wickedly funny novel.
The Break isn’t a story about falling in love but about staying in love. It is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest and brilliant best.
