Publisher's Summary

Rose Lloyd was the last to suspect that Nathan, her husband of over twenty years, was having an affair, and that he was planning to leave her. But the greatest shock was yet to come; for his mistress was Rose's colleague and friend, Minty. So Rose was left alone in their once-happy family home, where she and Nathan had brought up their children.

Then she started thinking, about the man she'd married, and how well she really knew him. About the carefree yet studious girl she had been before she met him. Twenty years ago Rose had to make the choice between two very different lives. Could she recapture what she nearly chose back then, and bring new meaning to her life now?

What the Critics Say

"Wise, melancholy, funny and sophisticated, Buchan's novel is more satisfying than a romance." (The Times)

    Story
    "Emotive but definitely not vengeful storyline."
    What did you like best about Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman? What did you like least?

    Told mostly in narrative form, the story lacks the passion and drama that interpersonal dialogue would have added.

    "Superb story, clever and well constructed"

    This is a classic of its type, real characters, genuine emotional depth and touching in the detail of the experience. Should be read with 'The Second Wife' which is the other side of the story and brings a true resolution.
