Book News: What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? by Claire Allan
"Kitty Shanahan, proprietor of The Dressing Room, is very much in love with love. But a routine phone-call turns her seemingly perfect life on its head and she is left trying to figure how just how her marriage could have gone so wrong. It's not easy to help hopeful brides choose their dream dresses when your heart is in pieces. And it's hard to know who to trust when the man you trusted with your entire life has mysteriously disappeared.
Journalist Erin Brannigan knows exactly where the love of her life is. Paddy has turned into a 'Groomzilla' - planning their forthcoming wedding to the very last detail. And Erin can't quite bring herself to tell him that even though she loves him more than she has loved anyone in her entire life, she is scared witless at the thought of getting married. And it isn't just because Paddy is battling cancer. Her heart was broken in the past and she is afraid it could be broken all over again. When she is challenged by her bosses to write about her forthcoming wedding, Paddy's cancer battle and the man who first broke her heart, she finds herself caught up in a whirlwind which spins far out of her control.
Thrown together in the elegant surroundings of of 'The Dressing Room' Kitty and Erin find themselves caught up in each other's lives while they try to find the way forward in their own.
Told with Claire Allan's trademark warmth, humour and emotion, 'What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?' asks if change is always a bad thing and if hearts which have been broken can ever truly be mended?"
