Amy is 44, happily married to Hugh, so is shattered when he announces that he wants to take a break from her, the kids, his current life and work. He plans to go off to South East Asia for six months, on his own, but swears he loves her and that he will be back.
Amy is not so sure. Maybe a break will become a break up. Besides, will Hugh be the same when he comes back? Will she be the wife he left behind, or will the break have unexpected effects on her? This is a novel with a deftly light touch, plenty of humour and a cast of interesting characters, some quirky, others more conventional. Hugh’s return is not quite what he planned, or what Amy herself anticipated.
