What a fabulous read! I love reading but dont often get much chance, but this book captivated me. I was away travelling and it was great to be able to pick up and read when I could. I even cried on the plane, it really was a brilliantly written book.
When Nick, a workaholic decides that he wants a divorce from his stay at home mum, Maya, he gets a nasty shock when his best friend, Gray, from college, one of the best divorce lawyers tells him, she would get most of his self-made fortune.
He asks his friend how he can minimise her payout and Gray tells him he needs to be a better husband and father to his twins. If Maya, were working (she was a hot shot divorce lawyer too before she had her twins) then she wouldnt be seen as the dependent she is when a stay at home mum.
He decides to give it a go, and in the process he realises what he has been missing and actually starts to enjoy the new him. But what if she found out what he was planning?
Ill leave the rest of this story for you to read. I loved it and will certainly look out for Leah McLaren again. It was very well written and I felt all the emotion and fun in this roller coaster journey.
A Better Man by Leah McLaren published by Corvus Books is available online and at all good bookshops in paperback rrp £7.99
