THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GROWN UPS, MARIAN KEYES
'JUST BRILLIANT' SUNDAY TIMES
'Myself and Hugh . . . We're taking a break.'
'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?'
Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her.
He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together.
Six months in South-East Asia. And nothing she says can stop him.
But when does a break become a break-up?
A lot can happen in six months. And it's enough to send Amy and her family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers teetering over the edge.
When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married?
Will Amy be the same woman?
Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then . . . isn't she on one too?

Involving and beautifully told . . . There's a reason why Marian Keyes is the queen of commercial women's fiction

There is such a variety of stories and the characters are believable and relatable. She writes funny parts, but then there are those moments that knock you down with sadness
An addictive book . . . lust and desire is described brilliantly
The Break races along with Keyes' trademark energy, lightness of touch and plenty of laughs
The Break makes me laugh out loud

Girl-power at its best. I laughed . . . I cried
Another belter. Full of brilliantly fun characters, genuine emotion and heaps of charm. We loved it!
From fictional diaries to a look at how to be a woman in the world today, these books prove that women are funny.
