Rebecca is a wife, mother and the author of an unmanageable number of to do lists.

Her attempts to coerce her life into something she has any hope of controlling are failing. Her family can't manage without her but she's starting to think they should. So she makes a decision. Only it doesn't quite go to plan.

Rebecca finds herself in therapy with a doctor poking around in her brain, asking questions about her childhood. She wants to get better but that means telling someone how she feels. How she really feels.

She's gone to pieces. Can she put herself back together?

What readers are saying about Gone to Pieces:

'A modern-day Bell Jar'

'What made Gone to Pieces special for me as a reader, was the choice of protagonist - middle-aged wife and mother, Rebecca ... proving that women over 50 are the ones who often have the most complex stories'

'This was a really unusual read but loved it ... Thoroughly enjoyable and unique book'

'I loved that it's based on a middle-aged woman struggling with her mental health as I don't think this is covered often. I found Rebecca to be a really likable character and I was really rooting for her the whole way through.'
