The heroine of Rachel's Holiday is back! In her twenties, Rachel Walsh was a mess. At 50, she's come a long way on the road to recovery and is ready to go back to where it all began - as a teacher. She used to hate the staff in charge of treating her addiction. Now, she's one of them. Rachel's finally got herself on track - but life never stops being messy. And when an old flame resurfaces, will she go back to who she once was? Or can she find herself all over again? Follow her story in Again, Rachel.
Follow the trials and tribulations of the five Walsh sisters, all written in Marian Keyes's witty and poignant style. The first book in the series, Watermelon, follows Claire as she navigates life with a new baby after her marriage breaks down, while Rachel's Holiday is the story of Rachel Walsh's struggles with alcohol dependency and trip to rehab. In Angels, sister Maggie leaves her husband and runs away to Hollywood. Anybody Out There sees Anna wake up in her mother's living room with no idea how she got there or why her husband in New York is refusing to take her calls, and in The Mystery of Mercy Close, PI Helen Walsh is drawn into a dark, glamorous world when her dodgy ex brings her a missing persons case.
