A life-affirming story from million-copy bestselling author Amanda Prowse about having it all, losing it all, and how new friends can show each other the way back to happiness. Although Women Like Us is packed with often dark and thought-provoking subject matter, there are plenty of lighter moments too. Individuals tell me that they come for ‘the chat’ (social element), exercise, being able to walk in isolated locations with company, and to make good friendships – amongst other reasons. But this weekend, celebrating her golden wedding anniversary is truly proof of their happiness, a joyful gathering for allthe neighbours to see.

Review: Women Like Us by Amanda Prowse | The Herald

The story’s layout follows the second-person point of view, which gives the opportunity for the author to address the readers directly, rather than just illustrating her own experiences with culture.

Amanda so openly recounts her own struggles which I’m sure will help many other woman in similar situations. This open session will focus on trauma-sensitive yoga practice, in which your autonomy is the most important part. I loved how honest she was from the very start about who she was and I loved that there was humour all the way through. I had just been up the street to see my darling wife Fi and her boss Mel to see what they wanted for lunch and we were talking about the show again and how great you were. I don’t read much non-fiction, but am making it a rule to read at least one a month next year (please nudge if you don’t see one on my bio/reading update!

Women Like Us” Summary and Analysis Krik? Krak! Epilogue, “Women Like Us” Summary and Analysis

Amanda's ambition is to create stories that keep people from turning the bedside lamp off at night, great characters that ensure you take every step with them and tales that fill your head so you can't possibly read another book until the memory fades. She recounts excitedly landing her first Saturday job at the age of 14, working on a market stall “selling plastic jewellery and other tat”. I connected with so many parts of this and was able to reflect on the women in my life and the lessons they have taught me.

Across the week of International Women’s Day, our This Girl Can Essex ambassadors will be hosting a range of free open sessions across the county, for one big Women Like Us festival!

Other novels by Amanda Prowse include A Mother’s Story, which won the coveted Sainsbury’s eBook of the Year Award. The table next to us had a group of older ladies, all good church goes including their minister and every time I looked over they were rollicking – that was so good to see and an absolute testament to your talents. But in this book she goes into much more depth, telling her life story with a raw honesty that endeared her to me even more. Anyone who peered through the downstairs window at the four figures sitting around her kitchen table would see a happy family without a care in the world. We recognise the importance of family life, and invest in one of the best packages for working parents in the UK.She deftly taps into a universal theme of what it means to be a woman in a world where beauty, slimness, popularity and youth all remain desirable currency. If you enjoy memoirs, I can’t imagine you not liking this book, and it’ll probably be almost impossible to read it and not make some type of connection to Amanda’s story. In 2004, Emma Stewart and Karen Mattison, two friends and former colleagues both found themselves in the same position. Finally, another common feature in the above women is that they portray the weakness of the men in the society during this period.
