‘The Woman Who Upped and Left’ is an entertaining and effortlessly readable novel. The first paragraph had me chortling and I settled in with a smile. 43 year old Audrey Pepper is genuinely engaging, she is divorced, rushes around after her 18 year old son and his girlfriend, makes the occasion mistake, and has forgotten that she is also entitled to a life. Audrey finds herself with a decision to make, a decision that could change the way she feels about herself. Fiona Gibson writes with empathy and an extra sparkle of wit, while this is an amusing (on various levels) and delightful tale, it is also grounded in reality. Audrey could easily be your friend or your colleague and her misunderstandings could be yours. Cheer Audrey on and wish her happiness as the pages to this satisfying and enjoyable novel almost turn themselves, how lovely! ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Woman Who Upped and Left by Fiona Gibson

Audrey is often seized by the urge to walk out of her house without looking back - but she can't possibly do that. She is a single parent. She is needed. She has a job, a home, responsibilities...and a slothful teenage son's pants to pick up. But no one likes being taken for granted - Audrey least of all - so the time has come for drastic action. And no one's going to stand in her way...
