I first met the lovely Christine Webber over 30 years ago ( oops), when she bought clothes from my boutique in Norwich, and many of you who live in Norfolk, will remember her from her days at Anglia Televison. She now lives in Brighton, and she went on to became an agony aunt for various publications including TV Times, Best, Dare and BBC Parenting. She also wrote a column for the Scotsman and one for Woman called Sexplanations. She has written 12 non-fiction books including How to Mend a Broken Heart and Get the Happiness Habit. But finally, she has returned to her original love of writing fiction with Who’d Have Thought It?
I have read the book, in fact devoured it in one session, and I really loved it!
`Who’d Have Thought It?`
This fun and `hitting a nerve` read is set against a backdrop of all the turbulence with typifies midlife in 2016.It is a novel which will make you laugh an dcry-often at the same time.
A year after discovering that her husband no longer loves her, Dr Annie Templeton wakes up with a sudden relish for singledom. However, she soon realises that being single in your fifties is very different from being single in your twenties. How, she wonders, do people of my age – with careers, adult children doing unwise things with unwise people, parents going gaga, and friends falling ill, or in or out of love – ever have the time and energy to find a new partner?
Jarrolds in Norwich is a book event with Christine Webber on Thursday 20th Otcober, 6.15 for 6.30pm
