September 2015 Debut of the Month. Hannah is waiting for her husband to come home so she can tell him she's leaving him. Months of put downs and unkindness and little cruelties, years of following his dreams instead of her own, mean she's ready to go. But she falls asleep before he comes home, and when she wakes at 4:30am, she hears a scratching sound. Tom, 32, has fallen out of bed. He's had a stroke, and all of a sudden Hannah finds she can't leave him, that she's caring for him round the clock. Will she be able to keep it up? This might not be your standard set-up for romantic fiction, but Marsh also works in healthcare, and says her debut was "inspired by the bravery of the patients I met while working in stroke services". I liked it - Hannah and Tom are fully realised, their relationship over the years carefully built up, and the unusual premise is unsentimentally, but movingly, portrayed. ~ Alison Flood If you liked My Everything by Katie Marsh, try Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper, or The A to Z of You and Me by James Hannah.
