Read this quite a while ago but remember it to be a quick enjoyable read. I put the rest of her work on my reminder list so it must have been good!

This is a very refreshing book by an Irish author. Francesca, one day, realizes that her life is just common-place when she discovers her husband with another woman. All at once everything that she knows is turned upside down. She has two choices: give up or fight. So she fights. She decides to get a life of her own. Not her sons' mother, not her husband's wife. Before she can though she must deal with the reactions from her sons, her husband's girlfriend, her husband and his family.
This story has pleasant twists and turns throughout the book. This was my first Patricia Scanlan book but it definitely will not be the last!
