Our book club choice for August - The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes.
What happens when a Dublin housewife unexpectedly becomes the most influential woman in the world?
One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed, collides with a Range Rover and meets a handsome man who wants her telephone number. She thinks he is arrogant and dismissed the incident.
But in this meeting is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart.
Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma? Should she be grateful or just hopping mad? And can she grab the chance at real, honest-to-goodness happiness now it finally seems within her reach?
