The Idea of You






Title: The Idea of You

Author: Amanda Prowse

Genre: Women's Fiction, Romance







Rating: 3 out of 5 fairies






Synopsis: With her fortieth birthday approaching, Lucy Carpenter thinks she finally has it all: a wonderful new husband, Jonah, a successful career and the chance of a precious baby of her own. Life couldn’t be more perfect.
But becoming parents proves much harder to achieve than Lucy and Jonah imagined, and when Jonah’s teenage daughter Camille comes to stay with them, she becomes a constant reminder of what Lucy doesn’t have. Jonah’s love and support are unquestioning, but Lucy’s struggles with work and her own failing dreams begin to take their toll. With Camille’s presence straining the bonds of Lucy’s marriage even further, Lucy suddenly feels herself close to losing everything…
This heart-wrenchingly poignant family drama from bestselling author Amanda Prowse asks the question: in today’s hectic world, what does it mean to be a mother?

Review: OK book. Not stellar, not horrible. Characters are pretty vanilla without any real defining characteristics, and the pace is very slow. A very meh book overall.

Where to buy: Amazon

About the Author: Amanda Prowse was a management consultant for ten years before realizing that she was born to write. Amanda lives in the West Country with her husband and their two teenage sons.
