PRINCE CHARMING? HAPPILY EVER AFTER? CHILDHOOD FAIRY TALES ARE FULL OF PROMISES, BUT THE REALITY - LIFE - IS A VERY DIFFERENT STORY. AND THAT STORY HAS A HELL OF A LOT TO TEACH US. Writing with searing honesty, wry humour and endless warmth, Christina Ford takes us on a real-life Sex and the City-like journey as she looks back on four decades of dates, loves, marriages, friends, frenemies, affairs, divorces, parenting disasters and step-parenting nightmares.
Bravely and candidly, she shares heartrending details of the betrayal and hurt caused by the end of her marriage, shows how she overcame her fears about starting again and lets us in on the secret of the perfectly timed fling that was more effective than years of therapy. Together, these intimate insights show exactly how such experiences and their lessons came to define the woman she is today. In Search of Mr Darcy is for anyone who has ever wondered if there is life after divorce, if there is sex after 40, or if they will ever find love again.
Hearts get broken, and even life's best-planned journeys can drop you somewhere unexpected, leading you to ask yourself, 'How did I get here? And, more importantly, who can I blame?' But Christina Ford is here to tell you that is exactly where the real adventure begins. This book will help you redefine love, womanhood, and what it means to come of age ... middle age.
