Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A sensitive tale about modern marriage and life running away with you. There is lots to get your teeth into. Emma’s inability to conceive, adopting young Yuri, then having a baby girl. James losing his job and the family having to move to London for his new one. Emma getting work and obviously a child-minder which is where the problems start. This is a good analysis of working parents not giving enough time to themselves, each other or their family which turns rather sinister.

If you like Sinead Moriarty you might also like to read books by Marian Keyes, Cathy Kelly and Patricia Scanlan.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Mad About You by Sinead Moriarty

The inevitable comparisons with Marian Keyes are justified and well deserved - Moriarty's characters are likeable, well developed and funny . (Heat). Sinead Moriarty's riveting new novel, Mad About You, will make every reader stop and think about the importance of trust in relationships - how fragile it can be, how easily damaged, how hard to repair. Sinead combines the storytelling genius of Jodi Picoult, and the compassion and humour of Marian Keyes, in a gripping story of contemporary marriage. Emma and James Hamilton have weathered lots of storms in their ten-year marriage. From the heartbreak of infertility, to the craziness of then becoming parents to two babies in one year, to coping with James losing his job, somehow they have always worked as a team. However, the pressure of moving from Dublin to London for James' new job - away from familiar surroundings and the family Emma loves - puts them under stress like never before. So when James starts getting texts from a stranger - texts that show startling insights into their lives - Emma is not sure what to think. She is far from home, isolated and before long finds herself questioning everything about their relationship. Maybe those texts are telling her the truth and the life she believed to be solid and secure is just a mirage. Somehow she has to get a grip, but how can she do that when a stranger is set on driving Emma out of her home and her marriage? One of the brightest voices in modern women's fiction . (Bella). Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her previous titles are: The Baby Trail; A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; In My Sister's Shoes; Keeping It In the Family (also titled Whose Life is it Anyway?); Pieces of My Heart, Me and My Sisters and This Child of Mine.

This book is as good as it gets in terms of chicklit polish and poise, humour and pain, pace and plot ... Sinead Moriarty can still bring readers from hilarity to heartbreak with great deftness - Sunday Independent

About the Author

Sinead Moriarty

Growing up, Sinead Moriarty was inspired by watching her mother, an author of children's books, writing at the kitchen table. Her childhood dream was to write a novel. It was at the age of thirty, while working as a journalist in London, that she began to write creatively in her spare time - after work, at lunch times ... and, truth be told, during work hours. Her first novel, The Baby Trail, a bitter-sweet story of a couple struggling to have a baby (inspired by her own early difficulties conceiving) was published in 2004 and has been translated into twenty languages. Sinéad Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. She lives in her native Dublin with her husband and their three children.
