The Break by Marian Keyes (2017)

Amy's husband Hugh isn't really leaving her.

At least, that's what he promises. He is just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. For six-months Hugh will lose himself in south-east Asia, and there is nothing Amy can say or do about it.

Yes, it's a mid-life crisis, but let's be clear: a break isn't a break up - yet . . .

It's been a long time since Amy held a briefcase in one hand and a baby in the other. She never believed she'd have to go it alone again. She just has to hold the family together until Hugh comes back.

But a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married? And will Amy be the same woman?

Because falling in love is easy. The hard part - the painful, joyous, maddening, beautiful part - is staying in love.

'A born storyteller' Independent on Sunday

'When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own' Daily Express


A wonderfully funny and feel good romantic story. 
At 568 pages it is quite a hefty tome but the story rollicks along pretty quick and I found myself pulled into the story from the very first line. Thereafter I spent every waking moment possible reading until it was finished.
I'm not a fan of contemporary chick lit and this was my first Marian Keyes novel but I can say now that I've dipped my toes in I wouldn't hesitate in picking up another title by the author.

A good escapist read by a gifted storyteller.
