Book Review: Who’d Have Thought It by Christine Webber: a must read for SWOFTYs (Single Women over 50)

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

Book for all SWOFTYs

What happens when your life is turned upside down at the age of 54, when your husband announces that he wants as a divorce, as he has fallen in love with someone else.

This is the situation Dr Annie Templeton finds herself in.  Initially finding herself in a state of shock, she subsequently accepts that she had essentially been ‘going through the motions’ in respect to her marriage , and emerges to rebuild her single life.  But Annie soon comes to realise that being newly single in your 50s is very different to being single in your 20s or 30s.

As friends around her evaluate their own relationships, and Annie finds herself adjusting to being both single and an emptynester, while being a supportive friend and mother, coping with an ailing father, and managing the demands of her career, we see Annie juggle many of the demands typical of midlife women. Not to mention entering the world of dating. All this is done with grace and humour.

The characters are likeable and realistic. facing the issues many women over 50 will relate to.

The book highlights that life can be better post divorce in your 50s, and also draws attention to the value of female friendships – old and new.

We see Annie adjust and blossom as she reinvents aspects of her life.

Does she find love? You’ll have to read Who’d Have Thought It and find out!

A great read for a rainy Sunday afternoon.
