When the Boys Are Away, the Girls will PlayWydawnictwo: Pan Macmillan
fter three years trailing the globe behind her boyfriend, Simon, a professional sailor, Meg Miller has finally had enough of living out of a suitcase. But when she returns to Dublin with their toddler, Lily, and Dan, her eleven-year-old son from a previous relationship, she quickly realises that all her friends have moved on, leaving her with only her rather kooky family to rely on for help...
Then Meg discovers her new neighbour, Tina is in the same boat. Tina’s a ‘work widow’ - her banker husband, Oliver, works in London from Monday to Friday, leaving Tina with only her baby sons for company. The two new friends vow to make the most of their time together and start to rather enjoy their man-free life.
When Simon announces he’s moving home, for good, Meg quickly discovers that having a man around all the time isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And that sometimes living apart is easier than living together.
But when Simon’s past life comes back to haunt him, Meg realizes it's time to stop playing and start fighting for what's important in life.
