Summary
Amy's husband Hugh has run away to 'find himself'. But will he ever come back? 'Myself and Hugh . . . We're taking a break.' 'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?' If only. Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her. He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. Six months to 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 . . . However, for Amy it's enough to send her - along with her extended family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers - teetering over the edge. For a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married? Will Amy be the same woman? Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then so is she . . . The Break is a story about the choices we make and how those choices help to make us. It is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest and brilliant best. 'Just brilliant' Sunday Times 'Girl-power at its best. I laughed . . . I cried' Daily Mail 'Another belter. Full of brilliantly fun characters, genuine emotion and heaps of charm. We loved it!' Heat'Keyes writes extremely well about modern women. A breezy, candid and deeply felt account of a wife, mother and career woman rediscovering herself' Metro'Fabulously entertaining. Classic Keyes. The queen of intelligent women's fiction' Sunday Mirror'A glorious life-affirming novel with Keyes on top form' Woman & Home'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
