We're taking a break.' 'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?' If only. Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her. He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. Six months in South-East Asia. And nothing she says can stop him. But when does a break become a break-up? A lot can happen in six months. And it's enough to send Amy and her family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers teetering over the edge. When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married? Will Amy be the same woman? Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then . . . isn't she on one too? _____________ 'Mercilessly funny' The Times 'I laughed . . .
