    I don t believe that Ann Widdecombe has ever been married or had children of her own but that hasn t stopped her writing a superb tale about how the law acts against fathers and men.Jason is happily married to Kat with 2 young children One day out of the blue she leaves Jason, who now whereas before had equal share in his children s upbringing, education, guidance, has to fight to see them only occasional, all the while suffering the financial hardship of running two households, plus the legal I don t believe that Ann Widdecombe has ever been married or had children of her own but that hasn t stopped her writing a superb tale about how the law acts against fathers and men.Jason is happily married to Kat with 2 young children One day out of the blue she leaves Jason, who now whereas before had equal share in his children s upbringing, education, guidance, has to fight to see them only occasional, all the while suffering the financial hardship of running two households, plus the legal costs and persecution of the Child support agency His former wife always seems to be one step ahead, with excuse after excuse as to why he cannot see his children on particular weekends.His wife waits until he has sorted his life out a bit then moves the children from Somerset to Newcastle meaning he sees them even less.Along the way teacher Jason meets other men in similar and worse situations, one of whom is driven to suicide There are some lovely tender moments in the book, the author portrays the affect this has on the children of divorcees very well, you see them grow up and work out for themselves who is acting reasonably.There is also a beautiful twist at the end

    A book written from the viewpoint of a father deserted by his wife, who has taken his children and makes it difficult for him to see them Unfortunately this meant we didn t really get to understand the woman s point of view This was another book that had the same title as many others which I find annoying.

    Excellent gripping read My only criticism was that it produced such emotion in me I normally read to calm myself This book made me want to go out there and fight for the poor father a man so typical of many of today s fathers.

    This was my first foray into novels by Ann Widdecombe so I wasn t sure what to expect, however I was not disappointed I never usually dislike a character in a book as much as I did the wife in this tale, what a scheming character I would most definitely look out for other books by Ms Widdecombe.

    My first Ann Widdecombe book which I picked up at a book sale I don t normally read books on relationships, personal conflicts and other related familial themes but I figured there was a different approach with this book as it was from the perspective of the husband father as oppose to the woman as it usually is in books tackling these sort of issues As a whole, it was a good read I did not find it too boring although I did find some parts to be slightly dreary It was easy to sympathise with My first Ann Widdecombe book which I picked up at a book sale I don t normally read books on relationships, personal conflicts and other related familial themes but I figured there was a different approach with this book as it was from the perspective of the husband father as oppose to the woman as it usually is in books tackling these sort of issues As a whole, it was a good read I did not find it too boring although I did find some parts to be slightly dreary It was easy to sympathise with the character of Jason Kirk, the jilted husband just as it was easy to loathe his wife, Kat However, I did find Kat s motivation to leave Jason was too vague and not explored well enough to find a justification in her actions It was just described that she was a restless soul whose constant yearn was change What I gathered from reading this book, is that in a marriage breakdown, nobody wins irrespective of who gets the house or custody of the children A divorce is the demolition of a family institution which does not reap benefit for anybody but the lawyers In most legal systems of today, the court will almost always award custody to the mother even if the breakdown was caused by her It is a common belief that children are often best with their mother because a father can never love the children as much It is often not the best resolution as a father will always have equal rights to their child which unfortunately most courts fail to take cognisance Thus, this book managed to shed light on how things are when a father suddenly finds his role shift from a parent to a mere visitor and its effect on the children

    I passed over this book in a charity shop as it s not my usual read my friend bought it instead and insisted I read it, and I m glad she did.It s not that I hadn t understood the difficulties that can arise around child access when a couple split up, but this book was so well written that it drew one into what is quite an uncomfortable area I was so glad it ended on a reasonably happy note you really felt for the main character and his bewilderment and anger were accurately portrayed A defin I passed over this book in a charity shop as it s not my usual read my friend bought it instead and insisted I read it, and I m glad she did.It s not that I hadn t understood the difficulties that can arise around child access when a couple split up, but this book was so well written that it drew one into what is quite an uncomfortable area I was so glad it ended on a reasonably happy note you really felt for the main character and his bewilderment and anger were accurately portrayed A definite five stars

    I know Ann Widdecombe as an out spoken politician and had no idea she was also and accomplished author and I had no idea what to expect from this book which I picked up in a charity shop In fact it s extremely well researched and reads well, but the subject matter, whilst important, is very bleak and somewhat depressing Still I was pleased I d found her and will look out for other books by her.
