Watermelon by Marian Keyes
February the fifteenth is a very special day for me. It is the day I gave birth
to my first child. It is also the day my husband left me...I can only assume
the two events werent entirely unrelated.
Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she ad ores, a great
apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to their first baby,
James informs her that hes leaving her. Claire is left with a newborn
daughter, a broken heart, and a postpartum body that she can hardly bear
to look at.
She decides to go home to Dublin. And there, sheltered by the love of a
quirky family, she gets better. So much so, in fact, that when James
slithers back into her life, hes in for a bit of a surprise.
This is the book that got me hooked on Marian Keyes. In this fantastic
story, you meet a family portrayed with such vivid detail - warts and all, and
are introduced to the sisters who you will learn more about with each
Keyes book written hence. She's hilarious, and covers some dark material
too. I have given this book to so many friends -- if I knew you, I'd give it to
you, too. If you have a Saturday or Sunday to spend, pick this up and read
it from start to finish. It'll steal a day of your life, but it's worth it.
