Man At The Helm by Nina Stibbe. Review.

Before I even start the review ..Go out and buy this book immediately !
The story begins when a young wife overhears a phone conversation that she should not have heard between her husband and I assumed his lover.This will alter her entire life. 
The story is told by her daughter Lizzie ,  she is a comical little girl of 9 and is the middle child. She has an older sister and a younger brother called little Jack. All their lives are altered when they leave their dad and move with their mother to a little English Village . Their mother is really struggling being alone , she really needs a man in her life so her children take it upon themselves to find her a man which causes many comical moments throughout the book. The book is not all funny as there is more serious and tender parts that really make you think and feel sorry for the characters . My favourite character is Lizzie, she is an optimist and has great spirit and motivation. If you enjoy a book with great female lead characters that will also leave you feeling happy then this is the book for you. 

I received this book from the lovely people over at
