The Secret Life of Sarah Meads

cover

What do you get when you mix a frustrated working mother, an absentee husband, a handsome stranger and a psychotic work colleague?
Sarah Meads was about to find out.
The hardest part was going to be keeping it quiet.
Well that…and keeping her sanity.
Join Sarah in this hilarious tale when she catches the eye of the handsome and mysterious gypsy Antonio at the local school fete in Adelaide and decides to bring a little excitement back into her life. But all magic comes at a cost, and hers might be the biggest cost of all.

Review
“Supremely well written; walking side-by-side with Sarah is relatable, funny, and poignant. How does a woman juggle her many roles? What does her partner see after many years of marriage, and take advantage of when he is able? How can Sarah balance children and a career? This story will “hit home” with many readers. But more importantly, ask you the questions that you may have been secretly asking yourself. I highly suggest for a book club pick – just make sure you have plenty of wine on hand!” 5* Glynis Goodreads

“I really, really enjoyed THE SECRET LIFE OF SARAH MEADS. It is a debut novel for V.K. Tritschler and I can’t wait until she writes another one – well she has – it is being edited now. I related, to a certain extent, with Sarah. Her mother and father is my mother and father to a T. Sadly my father is no longer with us – but mum? Yep just like Sarah’s. Balancing work and motherhood – also struck a chord. Luckily my children are now all grown up with children of their own – but gee it was hard for a while. AND, unlike Sarah, my hubby played a huge part in the parenting roles. So didn’t relate to a Richard character in my life – although my sister certainly could with her husband!!! I love it when I connect with the characters in a book. The storyline covers some pretty heavy stuff; bullying, mental health, family relationships to name but a few. But the way it is written allows you to understand what is happening without descending into the pits of despair.” 5* Sally Goodreads

“Fans of Bridget Jones are in for a treat with this story of a stale marriage that goes painfully–and hilariously–awry. Sarah Meads is married, working mum, but life hasn’t been as well, happy as what it should be. Enter the meddling Antonio who wants to give Sarah a push for his own reasons and what follows is a journey of self-discovery and letting go.

This was a fun refreshing tale, written by a South Australian author. It’s not afraid to send up contemporary family life and the story is all the better for it. ” ~ Kathryn White, Author/Critic, and Blogger
