The Break




A hilarious and insightful tale about a runaway husband from the internationally bestselling writer of smart, funny fiction.

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?
