Selected by Sarah Broadhurst
November 2011 Book of the Month.
Sarah Broadhurst is a big fan of Veronica’s books - she likens them to those of a young Jilly Cooper. This one, set in Devon, is funny yet bittersweet, exploring modern relationships with very well observed characters and situations that readers can relate to easily – a highly recommended treat for you or a friend.
Marriage and Other Games by Veronica Henry
When Charlotte Briggs' husband Ed is sent down for fraud, she cannot find it in her heart to forgive him for what he has done. Ostracised from their social circle, she flees to the wilds of Exmoor to nurse her broken heart. But despite the slower pace of life, she soon finds that she is not the only person whose life is in turmoil. There's Sebastian, enfant terrible of the British art scene, desperately trying to find his muse amongst the empty bottles. Then Fitch, who married the high-spirited Hayley thinking he would find wedded bliss, but instead has found marital hell. And finally Penny, local GP and recent divorcee, who is determined not to hurtle into middle age embittered and lonely. Over the long winter months, the four of them share advice, copious bottles of wine, laughter ...and maybe more.
ReviewsThis compelling and romantic novel is a real winter warmer. CLOSER Veronica Henry is easy to read. Her sentences flow across the page and her technique is impressive.
