‘Funny and sweet – a lovely, lovely book’
‘A sad, funny, soulful joy’
‘I loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After’
Douglas and Connie – scientist and artist, husband and wife – live a quiet and quietly unremarkable life in the suburbs of London. Until, suddenly, after more than twenty years of marriage, Connie decides she wants a divorce.
Heartbroken but determined, Douglas comes up with the perfect plan: he is going to win back the love of his wife and the respect of Albie, their teenage son, by organising the holiday of a lifetime.
The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed.
What could possibly go wrong?
