Getting a life isn't always easy. And hanging onto it is even harder...
Jodi Taylor brings all her comic writing skills to this heart-warming tale of self-discovery.
Known as “The Nothing Girl” because of her severe stutter and chronically low self-confidence, Jenny Dove is only just prevented from ending it all by the sudden appearance of Thomas, a mystical golden horse only she can see. Under his guidance, Jenny unexpectedly acquires a husband – the charming and chaotic Russell Checkland – and for her, nothing will ever be the same again.
With over-protective relatives on one hand and the world's most erratic spouse on the other, Jenny needs to become Someone. And fast!
Fans of Jodi Taylor's best-selling Chronicles of St Mary's series will adore the quirky humour in this new, contemporary novel.

A brilliant sweet romance - poingant and funny!
I woke in the night from unpleasant dreams feeling depressed and discovered Taylor’s latest book. Unable to sleep, I bought a copy and started reading. I then spent the rest of the night (and following day) laughing or holding my breath for the characters. This is very well written brilliant sweet romance. I will have to buy a paperback version (if there is one) it’s that good. I love the heroine. I love the hero. I love Thomas the golden horse. At first one assumes he’s an imaginary friend, but he’s so real… It’s such a lovely idea - an angel horse assigned to comfort lonely abused children in emotional and physical danger. This is a funny, poingant story about the two main characters unwittingly helping each other to heal - pulling each other up out of despair and back into life. This was just what I needed! An uplifting story that has helped me snap back into a more positive frame of mind.
