An Ideal Husband
by Erica James

After 30 years of marriage, Louisa is stunned when her husband Kip asks for a divorce. He is starting a new life with a much younger woman, the former girlfriend of his son. Louisa has to sell the family home and negotiate the fallout for her adult children as well as dealing with her own emotions.

Despite the difficult subject matter, the novel is warm, uplifting and at times, humorous. A great escapist read which also features dolls houses!
