--------------------------'One of the freshest, funniest, most exciting new voices I've read for a long time' JANE FALLON'Fresh and funny and REAL ...

Martha really spoke to me. She will steal everyone's heart!' VERONICA HENRY'Beautifully written and emotionally intelligent.

I rooted for Martha from the start.' Daily MailMeet Martha Ross.

She dreams of being a singer, but she's been working in a call centre for far too long.

She's separating from her husband, the father of her son. And she's moving back home to her parents' as a single mum, toddler in tow. Life has thrown her a few lemons . . . but Martha intends to make a gin and tonic. It's time to become the woman she's always wanted to be. And at least her mum's on hand to provide childcare - and ample motherly judgement, of course. Soon Martha realises that in order to find lasting love and fulfilment, she needs to find herself first . . . But her attempts at reinvention - from writing a definitive wish list of everything she wants in a new man, to half-marathons, business plans and meditation retreats - tend to go awry in the most surprising of ways . . . A warm, vibrant and painfully funny novel for fans of Why Mummy Drinks, Fiona Gibson and Lucy Vine. *Also published as The Reinvention of Martha Ross*
