We received an advanced copy to review and I read it last weekend in about 48 hours as I couldn’t put it down. The book just spoke to me as someone who is married for almost 10 years with 2 children as the main character, a suburban wife, takes stock of her life. I loved how modern and relevant this book felt to my life too – especially as the character carries on texting relationships, a mysterious Facebook friendship, and a hysterical foray into Twitter.
Here’s the official scoop as this is a great synopsis – and watch the trailer too!
For fans of Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary and Allison Pearson’s I
Don’t Know How She Does It comes an irresistible novel of a woman losing
herself . . . and finding herself again . . . in the middle of her life.
When Alice Buckle, who has been married to William for nearly twenty years,
receives a survey in her e-mail from the Netherfield Center for the Study of
Marital Happiness, she is in the doldrums. She loves her husband but they’ve
grown distant, she is bored with her job, and her adolescent children need
her less now. And she has reached the age at which her mother died. So as
she idly begins answering the questions, she finds herself baring her soul
in an anonymous survey she never even intended to respond to. As she
struggles, she realizes it has been years since anyone asked deep, serious
questions of her, and really listened to her answers. Soon her entire life
as she knows it is called into question.
