Meet Claire Walsh.

On the day she gives birth to her first child, Claire's husband James tells her he's been having an affair.
Right for who exactly?

Exhausted, tearful furious, Claire decides to go back to basics . . . and runs home to Mum and Dad.

But it's not the sanctuary she'd been hoping for. Juggling her sisters' drama, her parents' pity and the demands of a baby, Claire desperately misses the way things were.

So when James gets back in touch, eager to put things right, Claire faces a choice.

Will she forgive and forget?

Or can she find the courage to take a chance on herself, and start a life of her own?

Annoying and unrelatable characters

The storyline was cool but the characters left a lot to be desired. Especially the main character. Her crippling lack of common sense wasn't Bridget Jones style cute at all. Quite disappointed as this could've gone better. The discourse was spot on though but it just felt like Claire was a teenager rather than an adult - always petulant and slow.
