Meeting Lydia
by Linda MacDonald

When teacher Marianne comes home from work to find her husband talking to a glamorous woman in the kitchen, insecurities resurface from a time when she was bullied at school. Jealousy rears its head and her marriage begins to fall apart. Desperate for a solution, and introduced by her daughter to social networking, she tries to track down her first schoolgirl crush, the enigmatic Edward Harvey.

“Even thinking his name made her tingle with half-remembered childlike giddiness.”

But she is unprepared for the power of email relationships ...

Meeting Lydia follows the turbulent life of Marianne as she navigates a midlife crisis – the onset of menopause, an empty nest, a suspected errant husband and a new obsession.

“A must-read for anyone interested in psychology and relationships.” Norma Patrick

“Ladies, please read this book and when you’ve finished it, pass it on to your husband – I dare you!” Irene Edgar
