'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 in South-East Asia. And nothing she says can stop him.

But when does a break become a break up?

For a lot can happen in six months. And it's enough to send Amy and her family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers teetering over the edge.

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 isn't she?

I loved the idea of this book


I found this book had too many unnecessary plots and characters but will admit it kept my interest from start to finish.



Fantastic book


Great book.. My bookclub members all enjoyed reading this book.



Loved it! Beautiful story that I didn't want to end.


Having Booktopia app on mobile mean't I could read every spare moment I had. Fell in love with the family and their troubles and triumphs. Love prevails after deep soul searching. Made me think!
