Rose Lloyd was the last to suspect that Nathan, her husband of over twenty years, was having an affair, and that he was planning to leave her. But the greatest shock was yet to come; for his mistress was Rose's colleague and friend, Minty.
So Rose was left alone in their once-happy family home, where she and Nathan had brought up their children. Then she started thinking - about the man she'd married, and how well she really knew him. About the carefree yet studious girl she had been before she met him. Twenty years ago Rose decided between two very different lives; could she recapture what she nearly chose back then, and rediscover new meaning to her life?
The Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman, follows Rose's triumph of spirit over expectation and is a celebration of independence and self-fulfillment. Rose rejects the traditional vengeful route of the 'wronged' wife, preferring to explore, in the wake of her marriage collapse, the alternative life.
