The Wife Who Ran Away by Tess Stimson
  

Lovereading view...

Kate is brutally forced to choose between her past and the future. With her fortieth birthday fast approaching, all Kate wants to do is run away from her husband and adolescent children. And so she does. On impulse, Kate walks out of her job, her family and her life, and gets on a plane to Italy. With no ties and no responsibilities, she soon finds herself deliriously caught up in La Dolce Vita and the arms of a man barely half her age. But, can she ever truly escape the ties that bind?

If you like Tess Stimson you might also like to read books by Clare Chambers, Kate Saunders and Chris Manby.
