How to Break Your Own Heart

How to Break Your Own Heart

By Maggie Alderson

A fun romantic comedy with serious undertones from this well-loved author.

Amelia Bradlow seems to have everything she needs to be happy – a handsome husband, a beautiful home, money, good looks and a glamour job.  Everything, that is, except the thing she wants most – a baby.

Ed, her husband, is funny, affectionate and sophisticated by simply not interested in parenthood.  He likes his life neat and tidy.  And he likes having a wife who attends solely to his needs.

As she approaches 37, Amelia is faced with a life-changing decision, aided and abetted by Kiki, her hopelessly disorganised but ridiculously rich friend.  Should Amelia stay in her nearly happy marriage, or expose herself to the vagaries of a single life and the distant possibility of meeting someone who wants to start a family?
'Alderson's sensibility and wit make for clever chick-lit'
