Quilt on Fire : The Messy Magic of Midlife, Hardback Book

Quilt on Fire : The Messy Magic of Midlife Hardback



'A wildly entertaining and necessary book' ELIZABETH DAY'A must-read for every woman' JACQUELINE WILSON'A laugh-out-loud, haunting and beautifully crafted manual' DREDA SAY MITCHELL________In her early twenties, Christie Watson was convinced she'd found her soulmate, in a glowing flash of light that turned out to be a tealight setting her quilt on fire.

Twenty years later, her bed is burning once again... as she wakes in a perimenopausal sweat, night after night. This is the story of her journey through midlife: of the joy of letting go and the pain of the morning after, of the unstoppable power of female friendship and the struggle to raise teenagers as a single parent.

It lays bare the exhilaration, agony, wonder and fears of being a middle-aged woman with a wild heart, a changing body and a new set of challenges. And as her world takes on a different shape, there's something else she starts to feel: the hot flush of possibility...
