What if the person you least want to be stuck with . . . is the one you married? Julie and Michael Marshall have been married for thirty-four years. They’ve stayed together through thick and thin, through better and worse – and, for the last few years, it has mostly been worse.
They sleep in separate beds, live in opposite ends of their house and exchange approximately ten words a week.
As their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary approaches, Julie realises something: she doesn’t want to pretend anymore. Divorce papers at the ready, she’s just about to have The Talk with Michael when everything changes. Lockdown begins and Julie and Michael face the greatest terror they can imagine: uninterrupted time with one another.
Isolated in their house, they wonder how they will ever survive the coming weeks. But, when stripped of all distraction and forced to meet eyes across the dinner table, could it be that Julie and Michael might find a way back to where they first began?
A hilarious and uplifting love story about what happens after Happy Ever After and rediscovering love when you least expect it. Fans of Us by David Nicholls and The Break by Marian Keyes will adore this feel-good romantic comedy.
