'Shirley Valentine for the new millennium. This is my book of the year.' – Louise Allan, author of The Sisters' Song
It's never too late to reinvent your life
Audrey Lamont has happily devoted herself to family life for the best part of 40 years, but lately she's become aware that she lost herself somewhere between 'I do' and the weekly shop.

Worse, her academic husband Simon has found time for romance – just not with Audrey. Feeling invisible to everyone, even herself, she flees to her aunt's home in rural France.

While waiting for her sudden absence to spark a change of heart in Simon, Audrey finds solace in the charms of the French countryside and the company of her aged aunt and a cast of eccentric Bretons.

But soon Audrey discovers going AWOL might do more than save her marriage, it might change her life ...

Audrey's Gone AWOL is a funny and beautifully observed story about losing yourself, finding yourself, and discovering joy.
