Reader, I Married Him by Michele Roberts

Book Description

Who is Aurora? Every time she becomes a new Mrs (three times when last we counted) she becomes a new woman: art collector with the first; hippy with the second; deli owner with the last. Sad that they all died. Widowed three times...When Aurora decides to take herself off to Italy to visit her old friend, Nun Leonora, after her last husband's demise, she finds herself plunged into intrigues at the convent; and very odd goings on at the art gallery. Combined with her own dangerous lust for sex and food, this could well be the scenario that reveals the real Aurora - even to herself.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Aurora (a name demoted to Dawn by her step-mother Maude and always mis-remembered by Maude's priest) has just buried her third husband. She is feeling rather adrift and unsure of herself when an old friend invites her to stay in Italy. Aurora closes the delicatessen that she runs and heads off to Padenza to begin a new chapter in her life; as a carefree widow. As we accompany Aurora throughout her Italian sojourn, there are many references to great literary works which tempt on to re-read them at once. After a gentle start in the UK the tale zips along once Aurora reaches Italy, where she once again encounters men who awaken her sexual feelings. As Aurora discovers herself in this new role, will she find herself husband number four in Frederico, friend of husband number 2,in Michael the passion-rousing priest or indeed remain single and flit from lover to lover?(Kirkus UK)
