'Poignant and laugh-out-loud funny ... proof not just that Huberman can write, but that she can do so with wit, insight and charm' Irish TimesGrace and Robbie seem destined to be together for ever, but when he unexpectedly goes down on bended knee, Grace freaks out. Cue the mother of all meltdowns.On top of that, Grace is not exactly fulfilled by her job - dressing well-to-do ladies with way more money than style. Cue - in her addled state - losing it in work, with disastrous consequences.Into Grace's train-wreck of a life comes Verity - ex-Hollywood costume lady and vintage clothing queen. Verity has seen it all and done it all and her life makes Grace's look about as exciting as Songs of Praise. Verity tells Grace that the secret of happiness is to discover her 'heart wish'. If only Grace could work out what her heart's greatest wish really is ...Amy Huberman is both a star and a trendsetter, but as a writer she is blessed with an earthy, off-beat and irreverent sense of humour which makes her a gifted and original story teller.'Huberman has a light touch, but she handles well the realities of big themes like marital breakdown, defeated ambition' Sunday Independent'So full of feeling and SO funny ... a refreshing and honest take on the true priorities of a modern woman' Dawn O'Porter
