9780006510932: Taking Possession

A funny, sad, endearing novel of midlife crises, love gone wrong and the value of friends – human and canine. It will appeal to all fans of Madeleine Wickham, Joan Marysmith and Ann Stevens, or anyone who enjoys an Aga saga laced with black humour

Anna has left her husband. He’s a cheating, lying, miserly rat and her friends agree that she’s better off without him. But he refuses to stay out of her life. He keeps coming back to reclaim just one more picture, one more ornament, one more memento of a failed relationship and reminding her of how much self-esteem she’s lost. So she decides to kill him.

It is all perfectly rational. People meet with domestic accidents every day: swallowing rat poison, eating infected food. Who could possibly pin the blame on her? Why is it then so difficult to make him actually die?

Residents of the small Yorkshire village wonder what’s going on in the charming old cottage with roses round the door. It’s only Anna trying to sort out her life – but finding order amidst the chaos of husbands, lovers, daughters and parents proves tougher than anyone could imagine.

Review:

‘It’s Bridget Jones fifteen years on!… Written with poignant realism and crafted with rueful intelligence, TAKING POSSESSION is a very satisfying book.’
Norma Curtis

From the Back Cover:

A funny, sad, endearing novel of midlife crises and startling solutions.

Anna has left her husband. He’s a cheating, lying miserly rat and her friends agree that she’s better off without him. But he refuses to stay out of her life. He keeps coming back to reclaim just one more picture, one more ornament, one more memento of a failed marriage. This can’t go on; drastic action is called for.

It is all perfectly rational. People meet with domestic accidents every day: swallowing guarded poison, eating infected food. Why would anyone be suspicious? Why then is it so difficult to execute the plan?

Residents of the small Yorkshire village wonder what’s going on in the charming old cottage with roses round the door. But as Anna tries to resolve her life, amid the chaos of past betrayal, new passion, family ties and murderous impulses, it’s anybody’s guess what direction the future will take.
