Description: Once upon a time, writer Sarah Quigley was happily married and living in Germany, but there came a time when separation and divorce became inevitable. Recalling these difficult events and their aftermath, this Berlin-based memoir examines with honesty and respect, what came to pass.

Leavened with humour and chronicling the ups and downs of these experiences, this book is distinguished not only by its insightful and relatable moments, but by the ease of its beautiful writing.

Comments from BDS Reviewers:

"Quigley's Berlin-flavoured memoir of the highs and lows of a marriage break up is brave, funny, and lingering in its telling - recommended reading."

"Beautiful writing. An honest and real portrayal of abuse and separation and the myriad of issues that arise as a result of a decision to leave."

"Very well-written and readable."

"Beautiful writing and the tension seems very real."

"Some may find it difficult to read."

"A skilled New Zealand author - I think this memoir will have wide appeal."

"She sets the scene comprehensively but without 'damning' her ex-husband."

"The everyday language and experiences could allow readers in similar situations to identify with her."

"It certainly appears to be an honest and sincere account."
