Angels




Marian Keyes, author of the number one best-seller This Charming Man and Rachel's Holiday, explores love, life, marriage and escape in Angels. Following Maggie, one of the Walsh sisters, Angels traces her journey from married life to Hollywood.

'I'd always lived a fairly blameless life . . . up until the day I left my husband and ran away to Hollywood . . . '

Unlike the rest of her family, Maggie Walsh has always done everything right. At thirty-three she has a proper job, is happily married to Garv and never puts a foot wrong. So why does she make a bolt for Hollywood and her best friend, Emily?

In the City of Angels, Maggie gets to do things she's never done before: mixing with film stars, pitching scripts, partying non-stop. But is this really a once-in-a-lifetime journey of self-discovery, or is she simply running away from married life?
