Publisher Description

How far would you go to save your marriage?

Lou and Josh have been together for 14 years. They share two kids, a mortgage, careers and plenty of history. Now, after a particularly fraught Christmas, Lou is ready to ask herself: is this marriage worth hanging on to?

Every month for a year, Lou sets a different test for their relationship - from daily sex to brutal honesty - to help her decide if she should stay or go. Secrets are exposed, old wounds reopened and a true-to-life suburban love story unfolds.

I Give My Marriage a Year paints a sharply accurate, often hilarious picture of a modern Australian marriage. Lou and Josh are a couple on the edge, and their efforts to bring their relationship back from the brink will resonate with anyone who has ever asked themselves: is this enough?

Whose side will you take? Who deserves a second chance? And will Josh and Lou stay together or split for good?

Excellent

Thank you for an excellent book Holly!

Holly has a way with words

An ordinary couple written extraordinarily well. There was never a moment where I thought “get on with the story”. Every chapter had a great explanation for how I feel every day as a parent and many a teary moment was had as I barracked for Lou and Josh as they fought for their relationship.

Another great one by Holly

You truly are a gifted writer. Loving this book, the different perspectives and just a wonderful relatable read. The reflection this book has prompted in my own life has made me laugh and cry with a heart warming feeling of nostalgia over my life
