“The Break” is an interesting read, exploring in detail the relationship between Amy and her husband Hugh as he takes a break from their marriage. The story follows Amy’s attempts to cope, the author weaving in other more subtle stories of relationships and their intricacies; mother and daughter(s), work colleagues, etc. It makes for an impressive exploration of relationships and a myriad of grey areas are thrown up and dealt with along the way.
Overall, this was a good read; the story was easy to follow and held my attention to the end.
