A story of economic breakdown and romantic recovery from the author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman

Tom and Annie’s kids have grown up, the mortgage is doable, and they’re about to get a gorgeous new, state-of-the-art French stove. Life is good—or so it seems. Beneath the veneer of professional success and domestic security, their marriage is crumbling, eaten away by years of resentment, loneliness, and the fall out from the estrangement of their daughter, and they’ve settled into simply being two strangers living under the same roof.

Until the economy falls apart.

Suddenly the dull but oddly comfortable predictability of their lives is upended by financial calamity—Tom loses his job, their son returns home, and Tom’s mother moves in with them. As their world shrinks, Tom and Annie are forced closer together, and the chaos around them threatens to sweep away their bitterness and frustration, refreshing and possibly restoring the love that had been lying beneath all along.

In Separate Beds, Elizabeth Buchan has captured the concerns and joys of contemporary women, and her timely, warm, and funny novel tracks the ebb and flow of family, fortune, and love that is familiar to so many readers.

    " Had I not been sick in bed I never would have finished this book. The characters and situation were relevant and interesting, but the story seemed to meander, and the tone of the whole book was somewhat despairing. "
