Far From Over

Far From Over

Sheila O’Flanagan’s bestseller FAR FROM OVER is a captivating novel for anyone who ever wondered if they made the right decision about the man they used to love. Not to be missed by readers of Marian Keyes and Freya North.

Gemma Garvey’s marriage has been over for ages. Gemma ended it and chose to be a single mother rather than continue the pretence that her marriage to work-obsessed David Hennessy was working. So why is she so upset when he marries bimbo Orla O’Neill? Is it that Orla’s thin and gorgeous whilst Gemma, at thirty-five, feels more like fifty-five? Or that David’s starting a new life whilst she’s facing middle age alone?

For Orla, being wife no. 2 isn’t all she’s imagined, always aware of how Gemma coped with a house, family and job while she can’t even cook dinner without setting the kitchen alight. To David, who has loved them both, there isn’t a problem. But actually the trouble’s just begun…
