9780099492436: Take Someone Like Me

A brilliantly funny, warm-hearted novel from the author of Lessons in Duck Shooting — in the bestselling tradition of I Don’t Know How She Does It.

Libby had always thought her life was well-ordered, charmed even, what with three gorgeous daughters, an adoring husband and totally devoted friends. But lately, with one daughter constantly given to teenage sulks, a ten-year-old questioning everything in the universe, and a husband who views her as chief cook and bottle washer, not to mention children’s chauffeur and laundry maid, she’s beginning to view motherhood in a different light. But Libby soldiers on, taking her youngest to an environmental group to find answers to all those pesky universe questions, navigating egg-shells to confront her oldest about that packet of twenty-one tiny pills and cramming in some time for rekindling the spark in her marriage after the eight o’clock news.

Until one day, she’s had enough. So when she meets Daniel, attractive, passionate and engagingly spontaneous, she knows the turning point has come. But as domestic disaster and emotional calamity descend on the Blake household, Libby soon realizes that it’s not simply a matter of starting all over again.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Libby always thought her life was well-ordered, charmed even: three gorgeous daughters, a husband who adores her, friends to see her through thick and thin. But lately, with one daughter in a constant fit of teenage sulks, a ten-year-old questioning everything in the universe and beyond, and a husband who seems to see her mainly as the manager of school runs, ironed shirts and a well-stocked fridge, motherhood is showing some of its distinctly uglier sides. But Libby soldiers on, taking her youngest to an environmental group to find answers to all those pesky universe questions, navigating egg-shells to confront her oldest about that tell-tale silver-foil packet of 21 tiny pills and cramming in some time for rekindling the spark in her marriage after the eight o clock news. Until one day, she s had enough. She used to have more to talk about than the PTA and the price of apples at the supermarket; she used to have something to drive her life, a purpose behind things. And she wants that back - or at least some of it. So when she meets Daniel, attractive, passionate and engagingly spontaneous, she knows the turning point has come. But as domestic disaster and emotional calamity descend on the Blake household, Libby soon realizes that it s not simply a matter of starting all over again. Bookseller Inventory # AB99780099492436
