Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman is the bestselling novel from Elizabeth Buchan.

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.

Left alone in their once-happy family home, where she and Nathan had brought up their children. Rose 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 she had to make the choice between two very different lives. Could she now recapture what she nearly chose back then, a life where she put herself first?

Revenge of a Middle-Aged Woman is a compelling and heart-warming novel from bestselling author Elizabeth Buchan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Starting over This story tells the tale of a middle-aged woman whose life falls apart. All that she based her life on (her mariage, job, etc.) all fall apart within a few days. Being a softy for the felines, I had the strongest reaction to her relationship with her old cat Parsley.But how does one pick up the pieces and move on? Buchan spins a tale that is interesting, but mostly due to the personality of her main character. The reader does not exactly see her grow into a strong adult figure, but rather witnesses her coming out of her coccoon. The rest of the story is a little flat and somewhat predictable, but no less enjoyable.Just a pleasant, relaxing book to read curled up on the couch.
