From the bestselling author of romantic comedy The Armchair Bride, comes ‘Rebuilding Alexandra Small’. A hilarious story about the aftermath of a life falling apart.
Alexandra Small is almost seven years sober and married to one of Britain’s Ten Hottest Footballing Hunks. They live in gorgeous Brighton, where she has a fabulous job.
Allie has it all. Until one dreadful day, when she very publicly doesn’t.
A gloriously quirky and life affirming story of hope
When her perfect world crumbles, a face appears from Allie’s drunken past, hell bent on revenge.
Can she rebuild her life before a stranger destroys it forever?
And should she spend three weeks in an overheated shed having colonic irrigation with daytime TV’s Megan Macmillan?
Notes for book clubs
A key theme to Rebuilding Alexandra Small is recovery. Although Allie has an enviable lifestyle, when she loses everything, she rails against trying to rebuild something new that matches what went before. She questions why she needed to conform.
A further theme circles the pressure to build a traditional family and the story line goes on to address the freefall stress that lies behind a cryptic pregnancy.
The third area that might spark discussion touches on sexist and inappropriate behaviour within the entertainment industry with presenter Megan Macmillan suffering a career slowdown based on the actions of her husband.
