Product description

Amazon Review

Sheila O'Flanagan admirers will undoubtedly rate Far From Over as among her best yet. Having already achieved considerable acclaim for such charming and involving books as Dreaming of a Stranger, her work is distinguished by its combination of warmth and spry humour, which makes the narratives quite unlike those of any other author. Gemma, her heroine here, is considering how to end the moribund marriage she is caught in. When she makes the decision to go it alone with two kids, she finds herself surprised that she is so resentful when her career-obsessed husband David marries Orla, whom Gemma finds to be a brainless redhead. But Orla has her own problems as she wonders how she will follow the super-efficient Gemma when it comes to running a home; she can't even cook. And then there's David, who loves both women...

The situation has a whole mass of possibilities and O'Flanagan is astute enough to make the most of them all. All the characters are drawn with richness and sympathy, and this is her most beguiling book yet. --Barry Forshaw

I am a great Fan of Sheila O'Flanagan and I was not disappointed with this book. Once I started to read this book I was unable to put it down and so I finished it with 24 hours! This book follows the life of the ex-wife, Gemma, the ex-husband, David and the new youger wife, Orla, and of course not forgetting the teenage daughter and the younger son. After Gemma's husband remarries Gemma starts to re-visit her memories of her marriage and begins to wonder whether she did the right thing divorcing David.
I thought that this book was brillient and realistic. As a divorcee I could really relate to this book and Gemma in particular. And like Gemma, I too have found a similar happy ending. This is a great book that I would highly recommend to anyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Far From Over" and finished it within a day or two of picking it up. The story had good twists and turns and the humour was totally up to date. I am about the same age as the key lady in the story and was so pleased with the ending!!

I was looking for a holiday read to keep me entertained by the pool and knew I could rely on Sheila O'Flanagan to give me what I needed. Far From Over follows the life of Gemma as she tries to come to terms with her ex-husband marrying the "long-legged bimbo". Divorce was the easy part....dealing with her ex marrying somebody 15yrs younger than her was the hard part. Gemma starts the story as a bit of a scatter-brain who can't seem to manage her time or finances but as the story progresses and she comes to terms with her life as a divorced mother of 2 things start to slot into place. Things are not so rosy with her ex-husband's new marriage however.

There's plenty to keep you entertained in `Far From Over'. The quick quips and cringe-worthy moments are plentiful and all in all it's just a really relaxing and enjoyable read. Some people have complained that this book was too predictable but chick-lit is predictable most of the time. If I don't want predictable then I pick up a thriller.....if I want predictable and a happy ending I head for the Sheila O'Flanagan's of the world. If you want a fun book which will keep you amused and always ends with a happy ending then chick-lit is the way to go and you don't get much better than Far From Over.

This is the first book I have read by Sheila O'Flanagan and it has certainly made me want to read the rest if they are as good as this. After Gemma's ex-husband David marries a seemingly perfect younger woman, Gemma finds herself going through an identity crisis, and wonders whether she did the right thing in divorcing him, hence the title 'Far From Over'.Emotions run high as the story focusses in on the feelings of each character including those of the 'other woman'.I felt I really got to know the characters well. A great book, but could do with being a bit smaller though, rather cumbersome to carry around. Don't take it on holiday, too large.

Having read previous books by Sheila O'Flanagan, I was slightly dissapointed in this effort. Although an enjoyable piece of reading, it is very predictable and not as good as her previous books.

I loved the difficulties both women faced with the one man and how they dealt with them - being a second wife isn't always easy! And the relationship between the women and the children was really well done (Maeve Binchy but more uptodate). An easy read, but a compelling one.
