The only relationship she can’t save is her own

Alison is a marriage mender.

She helps couples who have reached the end of the line. But the trouble with spending your time sorting out other people’s problems is that you tend to take your eye off your own.

Even when her husband’s ex Lydia arrives on her doorstep demanding to her son, Alison thinks she can handle it. But what Alison doesn’t realise is that Lydia is the one who has the ability to destroy their happy family.

And sometimes the cracks can run so deep that even a marriage mender can’t repair them.

A well-written, thoughtful read about when love is put to the greatest test.

My Review

Make a date and start reading The Marriage Mender. Forget watching Eastenders for drama or for tension scenes at Christmas. The top tension drama starts right here with the book The Marriage Mender with family major problems and Christmas scenes of family chaos.



Alison the step mother is a relationship counselor the marriage mender she sees the good and defends anyone and everyone including her own family.
Alison’s husband Chris was left by his ex-wife Lydia when his son Josh was just six months old. Chris was left holding Josh without a mother and never returned back to see her only son Josh.
Now Josh is sixteen years old his mother turns up on his sixteenth birthday with a present for him and wants to start seeing Josh again.
Chris feels whip lashed that after all these years his ex-wife wants to start to see Josh.
Alison being a counselor offers a solution for Lydia to start seeing Josh but is this the winning solution?
Matilda the much-younger sister has the knack for asking awkward questions at the most awkward times.
The Marriage Mender is a fantastic tale of just how sometimes family life can get raw at times.
