Sometimes the only way to find yourself is to run away
When I was a kid and I’d lost something, my dad always said ‘Go back to the place you last had it’. The problem is that what I’ve lost is… me.
Kate loves her family more than anything, but recently she has started to feel invisible. Lying awake at three a.m. as her husband snores, panicking about shopping lists, birthday parties, and the school bake sale…
She finds herself in the kitchen, gulping water, staring at a postcard of the Eiffel Tower from Shannon, her best friend.
Paris, with its red wine, slippery cobbles and curly lampposts. Where the scent of freshly-baked croissants hangs in the air, and Kate last remembers feeling like herself.
The postcard is a year old. It has just one line on it: When are you coming?
I absolutely adored this GORGEOUS story. It tells the tale of three women. I found this book to be both fantastically funny and heart-breakingly sad at times. I would highly recommend this as a true feel-good rom-com.
Kate, happily married with two lovely children but she has lost herself. Her life is full of running after her husband and children which leaves no time for herself.
Shannon, happily single and childless whilst having a fling with her boss who is looking to make their relationship more permanent and wants her to meet his grown up daughter – Shannon likes how her life is going and not sure she wants to become a family.
Laura, living with her boyfriend who appears to be everything she wants and needs but is he really? He doesn’t want to plan ahead and is happy with life as it is whilst Laura yearns to settle down and start a family.
As Kate, unable to sleep one night, decides to visit her friend Shannon in Paris. Kate doesn’t share her plans with her husband or indeed her friend until she is already on her way! Kate meets Laura who is on her way to Paris for a business meeting.
Will a weekend in Paris give them all the answer they need to move forward. What does the future hold for these three women?
