Summary
"When retired actor and irrepressible ladies' man Buffy decides to leave London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is getting himself into. In possession of a run-down bed and breakfast that leans more toward the shabby than the chic, Buffy realizes that he needs to fill the beds--and fast. Otherwise, his vision of the pastoral countryside will go up in smoke. So he has the bold idea of starting "Courses for divorces." Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who's been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) nebbish boyfriend; and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. But under Buffy's watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers finds that they have more in common than perhaps they first thought"--Jacket
Summary
Russell Buffery, erstwhile thespian and thrice-married B&B owner, has hit on an idea: So you've split up. It happens to the best of us. But marriage is a division of labour and chances are you've relied on your Better Half for something you can't do yourself like fixing the house or sorting out the finances. When they've gone, you're as helpless as a baby. Enrol in Courses for Divorces and in a week you'll be able to stand on your own two feet.
