Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The other woman of the title is a lady your husband can hardly ditch – his mother! This is a glorious tongue-in-cheek, bitterly astute dissection of an impossible situation.

Comparison: Chris Manby, Claire Calman, Mavis Cheek.
Similar this month: Catherine Alliott, Erica James.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Other Woman by Jane Green

Ellie and Dan are living proof that opposites attract.

He always follows instructions and she throws the manual away.

He loves sports whereas Ellie's allergic to any form of exercise.

Ellie doesn't have a mother. And Dan does - a mother who wants to take over ...

EVERYTHING.

At first Ellie is thrilled to have Linda as her 'adopted' mother and to be a part of the close, loving Cooper family. But when she and Dan decide to get married and wedding plans progress, she starts to wonder: is it normal for Linda and Dan to speak on the phone twice a day? How on earth do they come to be having a reception with Chilean bloody seabass and humongous bloody white ribbons tied everywhere when all she wanted was a quiet registry office?

In fact, is she marrying Dan ... OR HIS MOTHER?
