Thirty-one-year-old Matthew Webster’s world is shattered when his wife walks out, leaving him to look after their
four-year-old son, Joshua, alone. Grief and shock are compounded by the sudden need to juggle childcare with his
demanding job as a theatre critic. Matthew works hard to rebuild his life, but is thwarted constantly by unanswered
questions as to his wife’s whereabouts and her reasons for leaving. It is only as the truth emerges that he learns
the full heartbreak and joy of unconditional love.
The novel walks a line between comedy and wrenching sadness. It is fluently written and its depiction of domestic
chaos … is all too recognisable.

Charming and enjoyable.
Another gem of a book from Amanda Brookfield, a thought provoking insight into the struggles of a man left to cope
on his own with the many aspects of childcare, and all it's problems. Entertaining and inspiring, well worth
Loved this book. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. I quickly bonded with Matt and Josh. An enjoyable read
that tugs at the heart strings.
She fleshes out her characters so well, that they are almost real. I have read several of her novels since discovering
her by chance on Amazon for my Kindle.
Brilliant plot, beautifully written. Absollutely loved this book. Highly recommended
