Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A tale examining modern marriage or, to be more precise, modern divorce, set around amateur dramatics and village life. It has a lot to identify with, a nice amusing, easy-read with a tear or two and a laugh or three.

Comparison: Erica James, Katie Fforde, Elizabeth Buchan.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Ex-wife's Survival Guide by Debby Holt

Two months before Sarah's twin sons leave home for their gap year travel, her husband Andrew, a keen amateur thespian, announces that he's leaving her for his leading lady. Happily married for the past twenty years, Sarah has no idea how to fill her empty house, her empty days, nor play the role of discarded wife. As Sarah is to discover, the way forward is strewn with hazards and humiliations. If she is not to be bludgeoned to pieces, she must acquire skills for survival ... fast.

Happily for Sarah, help (and hindrance!) is at hand in the form of well-meaning neighbours, a misbehaved mongrel, an eventful trip to Majorca, an unassuming plumber, and an unwelcome role as Mrs De Winter in the forthcoming Ambercross Players' production of Rebecca.

In this wickedly funny and hugely entertaining comedy of manners, life in a small Wiltshire village is exposed with a highly infectious sense of humour and a devastatingly accurate eye for detail.

About the Author

A keen amateur actress, Debby Holt divides her time between writing and supply teaching, where her dramatic talents often prove useful in persuading pupils she really does understand long division! She has five children and lives with her husband in Bath.
