Catherine Alliott's brilliantly warm and funny tale on taking control of your life, in Olivia's Luck.
'I don't care what color you paint the sodding hall. I'm leaving.'
When her husband Johnny suddenly walks out on ten years of marriage, their ten-year-old daughter and the crumbling house they're up to their eyeballs renovating, Olivia is at first totally devastated. How could he? How could she not have noticed his unhappiness?
But she's not one to weep for long.
Not when she's got three builders camped in her back garden, a neighbor with a never-ending supply of cast-off men she thinks Olivia would be drawn to and a daughter with her own firm views on . . . well, just about everything.
Will Johnny ever come back? And if he doesn't, will Olivia's luck ever change for the better?
