The Woman who Stole my Life by Marian Keyes

One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed.  The resulting car crash changes her life.

For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out).  That’s okay.  She doesn’t really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car).

But in this meeting is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart.

Is this all because of one ill-advised act of goodwill?  Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma?  Should she be grateful or hopping mad?

For the first time real, honest-to-goodness happiness is just within her reach.  But is Stella Sweeney, Dublin housewife, ready to grasp it?

International bestselling author Marian Keyes is back with another
masterfully told story full of wit and charm.
