51 Weeks


'This is a stunningly good read. It's beautifully written and the characters quickly became so real as I read on...I had a blast reading it and found I could easily relate to Amy's situation. Julia Myerscough's 51 Weeks is most highly recommended.'

- J Magnus for Readers' Favorite.

On a family day out, Amy Richards — mother, wife, fan of scones and Pinot Grigio — has a brainwave on how best to celebrate her fiftieth birthday year:

I must experiment and experience … challenge myself and get to know myself better. It’s time to break out of my comfort zone and try out new things … when I am old, I must be able to shout ‘Je ne regrette rien!’

51 Weeks tells the story of Amy’s hilarious voyage of adventure, growth and self-discovery. Every week, for one year, she must select and undertake a mystery challenge chosen by her best friends, Cate, Claire and Bea.

What starts as harmless fun soon develops into an always exciting, yet frequently turbulent and sometimes profound, experience. As the weeks pass, friendships are forged and broken, infatuation tests morality and ethics, and the revelation of dark secrets changes both Amy’s life and the lives of those she loves — often in unexpected ways.

51 Weeks is much more than a series of challenges. A sassy, highly relatable novel, dealing with the realities of ageing we all face, it’s also an inspirational and empowering journey of self-discovery. It prompts readers to put together their own bowl of challenges, get off the sofa, and try everything they’ve ever wanted to do — often learning something surprising about themselves along the way.

51 Weeks is LIVE!!! It's my debut novel and all I ask is that you take the time to read it, review it and share it with your friends and family! Thank you.

Julia Myerscough

I like reading fiction that is unpredictable and which stays with me long after I've turned the final page. Stories with strong, often uncomfortable messages, about life, society and the human condition fascinate me. I love narrative and descriptive text that make characters and events come to life in my mind. If fiction touches my soul and teaches me something.

Mum to two teenage girls, I live on the edge of the Lake District and work part-time in insurance. In my spare time, I teach French to secondary-school-aged children, I'm an active member of our local village hall committee, I enjoy wine and board games evenings and going on 'low-level' walks (when it's dry!!!)
