International Number One bestseller Monica McInerney brings us a sparkling and hilarious Christmas novel about family life For the last thirty years, Angela Gillespie's annual Christmas letter has been full of her family's triumphs. But this year Angela surprises everyone, including herself - she tells the truth. Angela's husband is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. Her grown-up daughters are more out of control than ever. And her youngest child spends all of his time talking to an imaginary friend. With fantasy thoughts of a life before marriage and motherhood becoming more than just an innocent daydream, Angela's real life is slowly slipping out of focus. But, as the repercussions of her ruthlessly honest letter begin to pile up, a shocking event takes Angela from her family, and she realises she should have been more careful of what she wished for. . . Praise for Monica McInerney: 'You'll be laughing out loud one minute and crying the next' Cosmopolitan 'McInerney is an expert in portraying the nuances and complications of family life' Red
