Publisher's Summary

From the Sunday Times best-selling author comes a stunning novel that will warm your heart.

Clear your house and clear your mind. Don't let life's clutter dictate to you. Throw it away and take back the control!

When Lou Winterpicks up a dog-eared magazine in the dentist's waiting room and spots an article about clearing clutter, she little realises how it will change her life. What begins as an earnest spring clean soon spirals out of control.

Lou's loved ones grow disgruntled. Why is clearing out cupboards suddenly more important than making his breakfast, her husband, Phil, wonders? The truth is, the more rubbish Lou lets go of, the more light and air can get to those painful, closed-up places at the centre of her heart.

Even lovely Tom Broom, the man who delivers Lou's skips, starts to grow concerned about his sweetest customer. But Lou is a woman on a mission, and not even she knows where it will end....

Happy Ending Lifts Us All

A well written book with nicely portrayed characters
The main protagonist is very meek and annoying at times but triumphs in the end
Another great performance by Prendergast

Not fun or humorous

The reviews said this was fun and humorous. It is not! I listened to 28 long chapters of this spineless woman being manipulated by her cheating husband. This woman has absolutely no self worth. It still hadn’t gotten to the part where she dumps him. Then he started another affair. There were gross descriptions of that so I jumped ahead to chapter 35 and she was still with him so I gave up. I couldn’t take anymore. What a waste of time and money.

Another Great Listen

I can’t help but love Milly Johnson her books just appeal to me despite being a man! Also the fact that Colleen Prentergast is such a natural narrator which is part of the appeal.
This was one of her best. A story with a really strong central character and real life issues and I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend it.

I feel absolutely cheated

I have bought this book from audible several years ago. I really thought that Milly had released a new book as a slightly different title. I have wasted a credit and this is a real luxury for me so I am sad and cross.

A Brilliant Book

Yet another brilliant book from Millie Johnson.
Each one I've read has been a totally different story every time. The narrator brings each book to life so thank you Colleen.
I would definitely recommend it.

A very enjoyable read

Excellent storyline that is light with a big dollop of 'feel-good' factor. Milly is the perfect narrator. I'm looking forward to starting the next one.
