Publisher's Summary

The laugh-out-loud best seller is back with the only book to buy this Mother's Day. Perfect for fans of Outnumbered and Carole Matthews, Fiona writes about life as it really is.

Forget about having it all. Sometimes you just want to leave it all behind.

Audrey is often seized by the urge to walk out of her house without looking back - but she can't possibly do that. She is a single parent. She is needed. She has a job, a home, responsibilities...and a slothful teenage son's pants to pick up. But no one likes being taken for granted - Audrey least of all - so the time has come for drastic action. And no one's going to stand in her way....

    "LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY!! "
    Where does The Woman Who Upped and Left rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best!! So funny but also quite touching in parts. The antics of Audrey's son Morgan were just hysterical.
    If you're feeling a bit fed up and need cheering up, I recommend that you read,or better still, listen to this book or any of Fiona Gibson's books. She is an excellent author and Emma Gregory, is a perfect choice of narrator for her books.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen and laugh!!

    Great to listen too, funny witty and at times it had me fuming with the main character Audrey , for the way she allowed her son Morgan to rule hear life!!

    "Easy listening."

    Easy going story. Great listening for walking to work! Not a complex plot and fairly predictable.

    "Too predictable"

    I chose this book for my book club and am sadly disappointed ... Bit bland and predictable . Does do the title justice 😕

    "really funny and touching"

    This book made me laugh out loud several times. The bit about the BHS 3 part jewellery set was hilarious. Made me remember fondly difficult times with my own teenage son
