At 44 Amy O'Connell thinks she's seen, heard or done it all. Until her husband Hugh announces he needs a break - from her. He is going backpacking for six months round Asia where he can do what he wants - and this is the scary bit - with anyone he wants.

'WTAF?' thinks Amy. What's she to do? Stay loyal to disloyal Hugh? Allow her ex-husband back into her life? Run away herself? And what about the children? A lot can happen in six months, will Hugh return as the same man? And will she still be the same woman there waiting for him?

Loved the writing style of Keys, but could she please shorten the novel by about 100+ pages. The characters are snarky, lovable, prone to human failings and the story takes us through many stages of disbelief, anger, denial etc of a marriage failing. It is done with a tongue in cheek humour and many of us can identify with different areas.

A wonderfully lively, loquacious and funny Irish novelist - but an acquired taste.
