Every Woman for Herself

ewfh‘Got up at the crack of dawn to kill the Fatted Breakfast only to discover that aliens had stolen my husband during the night and substituted something incomprehensibly vile in his place…’

Charlotte – Charlie – Rhymer’s husband wants a divorce. Charlie isn’t sure what she wants, but after the incident with the frying pan even she has to concede that their differences may be irreconcilable after all.
Returning home to her native Yorkshire and the bosom of her family seems like a good idea at the time. Even if Charlie’s father has never quite forgiven Charlie or her siblings (Anne, Emily and Branwell) for failing to live up to their more literary namesakes. And now Charlie’s got a failed marriage behind her. Still, she’s determined to bounce back from disaster and strike a blow for deserted older wives everywhere. But then she meets brooding actor Mace North, and realises that when it comes to dating for the over 40s, female solidarity be damned – it’s every woman for herself.
