The Marriage Mender by Linda Green
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Marriage counsellor, Alison, needs a bit of her own medicine and she is sensible enough to realise it. She and her husband, Chris, end up in counselling, but it’s the arrival of Chris’ ex and the disruption she causes especially with the son she abandoned that really pulls Alison and Chris back together. This is very good. Each chapter starts with some wonderful paragraphs taken from counselling sessions … very thought-provoking.

If you like Linda Green you might also like to read books by Sophie King, Lucy RobinsonDr. Lucy Robinson and Fiona Neill.

Synopsis

The Marriage Mender by Linda Green

Alison is a marriage mender. Her job is to help couples who fear they have reached the end of the line. But the trouble with spending your time sorting out other people's problems is that you tend to take your eye off your own. Even when her husband's ex Lydia arrives on the doorstep demanding to see her son, Alison thinks she can handle it. But what Alison doesn't realise is that Lydia is the one person who has the ability to destroy their happy family. And sometimes the cracks can run so deep that even a marriage mender can't repair them.
