When Charlie's husband Matt tells her that he wants a divorce she has to start from scratch. Suddenly single, broke, and approaching 40 she is forced to return to her childhood home in the Yorkshire moors.

But just as she begins to feel settled, handsome, bad-tempered actor Mace North moves in down the road and starts mixing things up for Charlie in more ways than one....

Great Original Storytelling
In Every Woman for Herself the main character Charlie, named for Charlotte Bronte, seems to be on a 'journey' to find her own strength through adversity. She has a family of siblings all also named for the other Bronte siblings, by their Bronte obsessed father; but there is a twist waiting here!
The book is mostly set in Yorkshire, which I suppose is essential for the Bronte connection. It is peppered with the alternative magazine articles that Charlie is writing to entertain herself. It has some almost black comedy to do with squashed watermelons. I think Trisha Ashley could win prizes for the originality of some of ideas. The narrator is absolutely fine too.
All in all, quite a complex story line, with lots of characters who play a small but important part in the plot. There are also some main central characters who all live happily ever after, or alternatively get what they deserve!

This is a romance which doesn't take itself too seriously. Lots of unexpectedness in the plot, odd-ball characters, and it's always engaging. It also has a satisfying happy ending. The style of narration fits in with the feel of the book, and makes it easy to differentiate between which character is speaking. A great feel-good book.

Treat yourself to a good giggle. Oh yes !!
Totally engrossing from beginning to end. Charlie is so lovable, a girl after my own
heart. Her thoughts and actions had me giggling and laughing out loud. The down to earth
affection of her family so amusing you will want to become one of them, sister, cousin
even. I listened late into the night and didn't want to stop. Narration by Julia Barrie couldn't have been more perfect. So good I just started this book again straight away, just
to have that feel good feeling. I would give it six stars if I could.
