I Give It A Year Summary

I Give It A Year: A moving and emotional story about love and second chances... by Helen Whitaker

Her husband's moved out - and her dad's moved in...
Curl up with the page-turning story full of emotion about family, marriage and second chances

It's New Year's Eve, and Iris has just found out that her husband, Adam, is cheating on her. Furious, she kicks him out, and enlists her Dad to move in and help with the children whilst she tries to mend her broken heart.

But her Dad soon starts to display signs of Alzheimer's, and Iris realises that if she loses her partner, she'll be managing an awful lot on her own. Soon, she realises that Adam wasn't the only one taking their marriage for granted, and for the sake of the children she decides to give him one more chance.

But is it braver to stay than to run? And can anyone fall in love with the same person twice?

I was moved to tears by Helen's words - she has such a way of exploring humanness: our flaws, our hopes, and our fallibilities. I Give It a Year is so well-observed, with a kind eye and an open heart. It's wonderful. * Laura Jane Williams, author of THE LOVE SQUARE *
Searingly honest and deeply heartfelt, I Give It a Year is a keenly observed tale of love gone wrong and the things we do to try and make it right again.

Wise and warm and full of 'aha!' Moments - I read it in one sitting (& hold Helen entirely responsible for subsequent sleep deprivation!) * Helen Russell, author of THE YEAR OF LIVING DANISHLY *
