doesn't know it - a marriage that is going wrong. When she discovers

that Adrian is having an affair, the family is blown apart.

Solace is a story of contrasts. While Adrian finds new love and excitement, Irene spirals into exhaustion, self-destruction and a kind of madness.

With their marriage in shreds and Adrian whisking their daughters on a trip of a lifetime ti Australia with his new lover, Irene finally reaches rock bottom. She decides to leave the unbearable silence of her home for a trip by herself to visit her brother Jem in France.

And as Irene soon realises, being along can mean discovering freedom, elation and even in the darkest of times, finding your solace.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solace I think this could have been shorter by half, I was engaged up until the trip to France and and the boat, however I could overlook the boat but the disjointed anger displaced by one of the members on the boat towards her was unnecessary. It was a sad story to the core but ultimately Irene is able to come back to the living for herself and her daughters. That was the only redeemable quality in this book.
