Lucy Lovejoy married her childhood sweetheart at 16, but since then she's lost a little more of herself with each passing year. With her 40th birthday approaching, Lucy discovers that her good-for-nothing husband is having an affair with her sister, a double-betrayal for Lucy, and it shatters her. Sitting on a bench one day - she looks back at her life, and feels like she's done nothing with it. So, mustering up all of her courage she decides to leave her family and the home she's devoted so many years to, she decides to go out into the world and start a new life.

Ditto. I must have had nothing else to read.

If you like soap operas, you will enjoy this book. I found it tedious, with chapter after endless chapter of the main character agonising over the past, torturing herself with indecision and asking endless questions of herself until at last what the reader realises will happen in the first few pages, at last happens. I admit to skim reading 75% of the book as it was too awful to read properly.
