Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to their first baby, James informs her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a postpartum body that she can hardly bear to look at.
She decides to go home to Dublin. And there, sheltered by the love of a quirky family, she gets better. So much so, in fact, that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise.

Deprimente, con puntos de humor, pero después de cerciorarme por unas cuantas críticas de que no pasa nada... y todo son sentimientos y tal... creo que mi tiempo es escaso y debo leer algo más interesante. Encima me pongo a leerlo en inglés...¡puf!...que no, que lo dejo.

A bit frustrating at times. The characters don't seem entirely believeable and you will spend a lot of time begging Ms. Keyes to get to the point. But it is a good read and you are guranteed to want to finish it all in one sitting.

her first novel? not too bad. Claire's character doesn't come across very clearly and when she is later described in the other Walsh books as 'feisty', i was quite surprised.
i find the Walsh series less engaging than the books about a couple of friends/ individuals.
