Publisher's Summary

The hilarious new novel from the acclaimed author of Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged.

Sofia Khan is just married. But no-one told her life was going to be this way....

Her living situation is in dire straits, her husband Conall is distant and his annoyingly attractive colleague is ringing all sorts of alarm bells.

When her mother forces them into a belated wedding ceremony (elopement: you can run, but you can't hide), Sofia wonders if it might be a chance to bring them together. But when it forces Conall to confess his darkest secret, it might just tear them apart.

An audiobook to make you smile, laugh and cry, this is the story of a mixed-race marriage and a mixed-up family, for anyone who's ever struggled to balance their pride with their principles, or stuck around to try to mend a broken heart.

Not like the first one

I read the "Sofia Khan is not obliged" and I immediately got the second book expecting something as funny and lighthearted as the first book. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. This is quite different and in places, I did want to skip sections. It ends in a way that more books should be expected, and to be honest I will probably still listen to them

The Empire Strikes Back

To begin with, I'm a white atheist woman of Sofia's mum's age who has never had any interest in rom-coms. So probably not the author's target audience. I got Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged free, so gave it a go. I found it very funny and grew fond of the character, although being thoroughly exasperated by her at times. Like Sofia's Mum, I too have adult daughters who are constantly about the house, so I may have felt more sympathy for that character than other readers. Having enjoyed that book so much (to my great surprise) I felt I owed the author some money so bought this, the second part. To begin with I was worried The Other Half Of Happiness would be more of the same, but less so. I almost gave up on it at the beginning. But, like the best second parts, it went darker and became something substantial in a different way. I loved it. Particularly the ending, which I was worried about (as a mother) but needn't have been. xxx to Sofia's wonderful Mother, who she finally begins to get at the end. The narration by Rita Sharma was excellent, if mildly irritating at times, much like Sofia.
