Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Dorothy Koomson and Liane Moriarty, this is an uplifting and heartfelt novel from the author of The Memory Book, which was featured in the Richard & Judy book club 2014. Sometimes you have to have the courage to start over. Rose Pritchard has fled her home and her abusive husband with little more than the clothes on her back - and her most precious possession, her seven year old daughter Maddie. But Rose does have one other thing left - a glimmer of hope that she can build a better life for herself and her daughter, whatever it takes.

'The Runaway Wife is a compelling story of second chances and the restorative power of love. Heartbreaking yet completely uplifting, Rowan Coleman beautifully portrays a mother's desperate hope against unimaginable odds. It will reaffirm your faith in life and stay with you long after the story ends' -- Miranda Dickinson
'I love the way the story builds and you learn Rose's back story at the same time as her future story. It's a very human book, full of emotion, and you really feel everything that Rose is going through. Maddie's character is especially well-written, and she feels very real in her childlike reaction to what is going on around her. Uplifting and inspirational, it's a story full of sadness, fear and new beginnings. But what this book is ultimately about is the importance of hope. And I certainly hope this is a big seller.
