A funny heart-warming read . Some very good observations in this, I found myself thinking “thank goodness Iâm not the only one who does that” on several occasions. Instead of struggling to find Mr Perfect and then get him to commit, Maggie Hunter has exactly the opposite problem. The perfect man wants her to live with him and all she can think is she doesnât want to relinquish her freedom, her flat or her nights in bleaching arm hair. Great characters and good fun.

Synopsis

The Romancipation of Maggie Hunter by Jane Sigaloff

*Romancipation

ro-man-ci-pa-tion noun

The freedom for women to love whom they choose whilst retaining their own space and identity. In other words, the final stage in womenâs liberation!

Maggie is living the life sheâs always wanted. Her career is taking off and, thanks to Japanese straightening technology, her hair is lying down. Maggie even has a funny, caring boyfriend – but thereâs one problem: he wants Maggie to move in.

Maggieâs not sure sheâs ready to move from “me” to “we”… As she examines the relationships around her, Maggie has to decide: is she ready to face her fears and embrace her own romancipation?

Progressing to researcher and then to assistanct producer, her contracts took her to MTV and finally to the BBC, where she worked for several years.

Since 2000 Jane has enjoyed a double life as a part-time PA which has given her more time to write and feel guilty about not going to the gym. Jane's novels include Lost and Found, Technical Hitch, Like Mother, Like Daughter and Confessions of an Agony Aunt.
