How Hard Can It Be
Kate Redding is almost 50 and she hasn't quite come to terms with it yet. Instead she is struggling with family, career and just about everything life throws at her in the witty and laugh out loud story. Her teenage daughter Emily is distraught over a social media faux pas when this story opens. Kate isn't quite sure how to handle the problem since her own social media experience is limited. Compounding problems at home her husband has decided to retrain as a counselor, meaning he will be without an income for the next two years. Having purchased a fixer-upper which is turning into a money pit, Kate decides its time to get back into the job market. After a seven-year absence from the world of finance, this may not be as easy as it seems. Kate will just have to do what it takes to find a job in the city of London, even if that means lying about her age.
As if that is not enough there is the onset of menopause to worry about, aging parents that need to be looked after, by Kate of course and a marital relationship that has seen better days. All of which will be tested with the appearance of an old boyfriend and Kate's determination to face life head-on. It was not hard to laugh out loud and marvel at the observations made in this book.
