A break isn't a break up

'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 . .

An outstanding look at life for the modern Irish woman. Highly Recommended. @margaretbmadden

This book is, simply, brilliant.  Her best yet.


Read this. Read all her books. She’s a rockstar.


Stick on the kettle, tell the kids to fend for themselves and get stuck in – you won’t regret it.
