Descrizione

THE QUEEN OF FEEL-GOOD FICTION!
'Every time you discover a new Milly book, it's like finding a pot of gold' Heat
The brand new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Perfectly Imperfect Woman - a gorgeous read full of love, life and laughter.

Sophie Mayhew looks like she has the perfect life. Wife of rising political star John F Mayhew, a man who is one step away from the top job in the government, her glamour matches his looks, power, breeding and money. But John has made some stupid mistakes along the way, some of which are threatening to emerge. Still, all this can still be swept under the carpet as long as Sophie 'the trophy' plays her part in front of the cameras.

But the words that come out of Sophie's mouth one morning on the doorstep of their country house are not the words the spin doctors put in there.  Bursting out of the restrictive mould she has been in since birth, Sophie flees to a place that was special to her as a child, a small village on the coast where she intends to be alone.

But once there, she finds she becomes part of a community that warms her soul and makes her feel as if she is breathing properly for the first time. Sophie knows she won't be left in peace for long. Now she must decide: where does her real future lie?

    I loved this book. Some women take on the world face to face, with a hardscrabble attitude, testing their limits in an “in your face” kind of way. I just finished a great book by Katherine Center and I admit to be in awe of her heroine.In Milly Johnson’s latest book, The Magnificent Mrs. Mayhew, the heroine’s personality is totally antithetical. She is called a cold fish and lacking in emotion. She was tutored to be the finishing touch to a successful man, a very pretty ornament. She is a champion of the quiet order despite being marginalized by all around her. Seeing her truth makes her immensely human, completely likable and the most respectable, by a long mile, of all the reprobates surrounding her.Sophie Calladine Mayhew throws out a quote from Macbeth that alerted me to the nastiness that was approaching. Caught up in the spider’s web of British politics with a sh*t of a husband who cares only about becoming the next lodger at 10 Downing Street, this heroine is thrown to the wolves, the undeserving, the malicious gossips, and the deviant political forces. She can trust no one, least of all any member of her family. This is a great story about the corruption of raw political power, about men who feel they are entitled to anyone and anything and one very bright, very damaged, very frightened and very brave woman who can tumble the pile. Thank you NetGalley and Gallery, Pocket Books for a copy.

    The Magnificent Mrs. Mayhew is a first read of Milly Johnson for me - but it won't be my last!Sophie has been brought up to stifle her emotions and 'do her duty'. That duty doesn't include herself. Instead she is to support her husband, a politician who has a good shot of being Prime Minister. She has always done what is necessary to help his career. After all, he loves her - doesn't he?Until....Doorstepgate.....the day that Trophy Sophie has had enough. Enough of her husband, their families and not enough of herself. She runs away to the only place she truly remembers being herself - and being happy. To a small village by the sea. (Who doesn't want to live in a village by the sea?!The first few chapters have a lot of political machinations and descriptions - not my favorite. But it does give us an idea of what Sophie is living with and shy she rebels. (In fine fashion!)The real treat is when she lands in the village. The village is home to many quaint shops, kind and generous villagers - and a handsome vicar and his son.... Uh huh, there is most definitely some attraction there.I loved Milly as a lead character - the reader can't help but feel outraged at how her family and husband treat her. (And they are quite despicably well depicted) And hope that that little spark inside her can grow. The supporting cast in the village is simply wonderful - you can't help but wish you lived there! Johnson develops the Sophie romantic sub plot at the just the right speed - as friends with no agenda. There are also some other relationships in the village that need repair and these too are well depicted. There's a wee touch of magic in an old house as well that makes you wonder.....And although the book builds towards it and the reader has an inkling of what it might be, the ending is simply perfect! I wonder if there could be more stories from this Yorkshire village?Jenny Colgan is one of my go-to's for feel good reading. I've added Milly Johnson to that list as well!
