Anna Walsh needs her old life back: her home, her glamorous career and above all the love of her life, her husband Aidan. But what has driven her so far from everything she loves?

I read Anybody Out There? last spring, and while packing up the house to move, I passed it on to a girlfriend. But, wonder of wonders, upon reaching my destination I found that I "missed" it. In such a short time the characters had become my friends. The Walsh sisters had become someone to turn to when I'm blue. So I hopped out to the local bookshop and paid full price for my second copy - it's really that good! Now, I'll LEND it to friends to read, but it's a stand-by on my bookshelf for whenever I need a laugh, a whimper, or a shoulder to lean on.
The joy of this book was the slow unraveling of the story and the unfurling of the mystery, so my advice is, "Don't read too many reviews, just go get it and find a couch to curl up on." Those who have recently taken a trip to New York will especially find this book delicious.

It?s Anna?s Turn in the Spotlight!!
Marian Keyes is a powerhouse ? to me, she's a combination of Maeve Binchy mixed with a little Sophie Kinsella but clearly a phenomenal talent in her own right. I think I enjoyed this Walsh sister book better than the others (while, like everyone else, patiently waiting for Helen?s book) it was funny, sad, long, but in a good way ? there was no skimming or counting pages with this read ? enjoyable, I?m glad I saved it because there are not many books as good as the ones that Keyes pens and I?m so glad she recognized her talent and is doing what she?s supposed to be doing in this life ? Well Done ? Bravo, yet again to Marian Keyes!
In this tale, Anna is in her early thirties, married and a victim of a tragic car accident. The story opens with her convalescing at her parents? home in Ireland. There have been many reviews of this book and I don?t want to spoil it, so I won?t go into too many details ? if you read the product description and other reviews, then you already know what the book is basically about. There is an interesting twist mid-way into the book that will keep you reading. This was a really good read ? highly recommended!

Loved this book
I am a big fan of Marian Keyes, especially her books about the Walsh sisters. I eagerly awaited the release of this latest story about Anna Walsh, and it did not disappoint. It was funny, sad, and heartwarming. I read well into the night when I bought it, and got up early the next day to finish it. Marian Keyes fans will not be disappointed.
