The characters in this story are so real, honest, flawed and engaging they really draw you in. I felt like I experienced everything with Amy, the main character and highly recommend The Break.

Plan to listen to this when you have a lot of time available because you won't want to even pause it. It draws you in with its intriguing characters and unexpected shifts. Another excellent recommendation from Marian Keyes.

This was recommended on Marian Keyes' vlog and it's easy to see why. It's a beautifully written gripping story.
