Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Starter marriage is the new buzz-word for a first marriage that lasts only a short time and ends in a quick divorce. No kids, no complications, just trying it out, learning from the mistakes and if you need help, then there is always The Divorce Survival Classes. It’s a lovely concept, bittersweet but handled with light humour and so astute. You’ll love it.

Comparison: Carmen Reid, Lisa Jewell, Chris Manby.

Synopsis

The Starter Marriage by Kate Harrison

Tess Leonard thought matrimony was for life, but her husband has decided that their marriage is the relationship equivalent of a starter home: cramped, claustrophobic and something he's definitely outgrown.

Now, at thirty-five, Tess is in the biggest mess of her life. Known to all her friends as 'Tip Top Tess' because of her dogged pursuit of the perfect home, the perfect marriage and the perfect career, she's now a candidate for How Clean Is Your House? And it's all because Barney has walked out.

But there's a life raft on the horizon: The Divorce Survival Class. It may be uncomfortable, overcrowded and nearly sinking under the weight of excess baggage, but it's a boot-camp for the broken-hearted. Over eight weeks, Tess and her battle-weary classmates will lay bare the darkest secrets of their failed marriages - from the thrills of a threesome to the monotony of monogamy.
And course leader William, an alchemist for the unloved and rejected, will turn their lives around in truly spectacular style…
