I gave this book 3 stars for two reasons. 1. As much as I did not enjoy this book, I have to give it to Adele Parks. She writes impeccably. She is an extremely skilled writer, and her characterisation, flow of dialogue and thoughts, structure, and all of that was absolutely flawless. Sure, I did not like neither the book nor the storyline, but I appreciated her writing skills. During her career Adele has lived in Italy, Botswana and London. Now she lives happily in Surrey, UK I was amused, touched, romanced, saddened and thrilled by the story from start to finish. Totally unputdownable!' As Peter’s interest diminishes and Lucy’s domestic responsibilities increase, Lucy wonders if the ‘happily ever after’ is all a big con. Without a maternal bone in her body she’s always playing catch-up in a game where she doesn’t know the rules and can’t understand what there is to win anyway. I do! I was given A Poem Every Day of the Year last Christmas. I tried to read one every day and I try to find something in it – perhaps I put more significance to signs than I should. I love the fact that I get a range of works from four centuries. Aside from that, I love Philip Larkin’s poetry, which I studied at university – one of the few poets who I didn’t find hard understanding. The Whitsun Weddings is a lovely collection of his. What book would you give as a gift?

And when her boys begin to need her less, it becomes clear to Rose that Lucy’s life is devoid of real purpose or passion. Here we re-join the lives of Connie and her friends, Rose, Lucy and Daisy following on from their stories in Playing Away, set before Lie, Lies, Lies. I read this book in two sittings in less than 24 hours... Why? Because i wanted to finish because i found the book incredibly disappointing. Not only was the storyline rubbish and not well spaced and timed it was truly boring. I’ve always dreamed of being a writer and when my first novel – Playing Away – was published the Evening Standard identified me as one of London’s ‘Twenty Faces to Watch’, which was very nice of them!Young Wives' Tales bercerita tentang tiga sahabat : Rose, Lucy, dan Connie. Para istri dengan cerita masing-masing. Cerita dikemas ke dalam cerita tiga tokoh yang menceritakan versinya dari sudut pandang masing-masing. Sayangnya, saya benar-benar kurang bisa berempati kepada dua karakter yang lain yang bertugas membawakan cerita. Selain Rose, ada Lucy, si selingkuh yang mencuri suami Rose dan yang (bisa dibilang) lama kelamaan tidak menyukai peran istri dan ibu. Dan John, mantan Connie sekaligus figur penggoda-agar-berselingkuh-di-masa-kini. Ceritanya sendiri mengalir biasa, tidak ada konflik besar yang membuat keempatnya bersinggungan. Malah, cerita Connie dan John bisa dikeluarkan dan dibuat novel sendiri.

Alison doesn’t want to believe him but the evidence begins to corroborate his story. If that wasn’t bad enough, the man tells Allison that his wife died of cancer and that Katherine might have inherited it. Connie Green's life should be perfect. She's married to gentle, loving Luke, has a good job and really fabulous friends. She thinks she can't be happier.Connie goes to a work conference and meets John he is forbidden temptation and a real ladies man. Connie resists and at another conference she cannot she gives in. She is free with him and cannot wait to see him again. Luke is often away on business so it’s easy for her to get away.
