The School for Husbands

By Wendy Holden

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A deliciously funny tale of taming husbands from the Sunday Times bestselling author of BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE and MARRYING UP, WENDY HOLDEN.

Sophie's marriage was perfect, but now it's all gone wrong. Mark works late; she's left with the baby, domestic drudgery, her own career to keep on the go and the growing feeling that Mark is having an affair. When he fails to come home one night it's the last straw.

Sophie wants a divorce. But Mark doesn't. He hasn't been unfaithful, just thoughtless. Desperate not to lose his family, he signs up to the 'School for Husbands', which transforms hopeless spouses into perfect marriage partners. But will its intensive and unusual tuition be enough to get him back with Sophie? Especially now an eligible millionaire is after her...
