Every woman has thought it. Cat O Connor is no different.
Why do we have to live with men? As another evening with her best friends and a few bottles of wine comes to an end, Cat O Connor is left pondering this very question. And, escaping from a ruined love affair, she is about to find the answer.
When Cat joins a group of women in a huge, decaying farmhouse deep in the countryside, she prepares to embark on six months without men. Cat is promised a nirvana of serenity where the chores are done without mutinous mutterings, where nourishing food simmers on the Aga and where feelings are taken seriously.
But Cat soon discovers that women are no saints either . . .
A writer who is funny, upbeat and heart-warming - Fiona Walker
Funny, original and wise - Katie Fforde
Very, very funny and insightful. The kind of book that tells you as much about yourself as it does its own characters. Highly recommended - Louise Candlish
Bernadette Strachan's new book explores a very big question with great humour and originality. I really couldn't put it down, much to the annoyance of the man I have to live with! - Chris Manby
