Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we've got the BOOK SPOTLIGHT shining on a title making its way through the blogosphere with Rachel's Random Resources. It's a story that centers around secrets, and how even when we think we're the only one with them, there's always more in the surrounding than we might know. I mean, after all, you only REALLY ever know the someone that people let you see...right? Ladies and gents, may I introduce today's title in the spotlight...
About the book...
Roger Kurmudge is rather smug about his affluent life and happy marriage. It’s just as well his wife, Jane, is totally in the dark about what he got up to in the past. But on his retirement day, Jane disappears. Roger’s about to panic. Will he have to sell some shares or – heaven forbid! – the house in Bordeaux to pay a ransom demand? Worse – has Jane discovered his guilty secret? Then Jane’s emails start arriving. Take the dog to the vet. Look after grandson Alfie for the day. Do the washing, shopping and cooking. Host Christmas for the family. Roger doesn’t know why Jane’s gone but he’s sure he can manage her ‘women’s work’ without any trouble. Although it’s harder than it looks.
As the weeks go by and Jane stays away, Roger is forced to re-examine everything he thought he knew about his family, his life and himself. But even if Roger can change for the better, will Jane ever come back? Or has she, too, been keeping secrets of her own?
About author Clare Hawken...
Jane’s Away is my debut novel, although I have a couple of other manuscripts in a drawer. I live in Wiltshire with my family, three guinea pigs and a very stubborn springer spaniel, and when I’m not writing, I’m avoiding housework by hiding in a room, reading one of the many books on my TBR pile.
