Swimming Upstream by Ruth Mancini

Lizzie and Larsen are heading towards breaking-up after a long-term relationship. This is a huge life-changing moment for Lizzie who built her world around Larsen, she soon realises that she has no true friends, the friends she thought she had are all she made through Larsen.

When Lizzie is involved in an accident, she bumps into old school friend Catherine and is surprised when she recognises Catherine’s fiancĂ©. This chance meeting will spiral into changing Lizzie’s life forever.

There is never a dull moment in this book. I wish I could give the book more than five stars. The story is about the end of a relationship, and the beginning of something new, a fresh start, which sees new relationships, and friendships developing.  The story is excellently written, with a good cast of characters, each facing their own crossroads in life where important decisions need to be made.  The author covers some very serious issues in the book, and she does it in a realistic and sensitive way. This book is going in my Top Ten reads.
