Book Description

April 6 2009
When Lou Winter picks up a dog-eared magazine in the dentist's waiting room and spots an article about clearing clutter, she little realises how it will change her life. What begins as an earnest spring clean soon spirals out of control. Before long Lou is hiring skips in which to dump the copious amounts of junk she never knew she had. Lou's loved ones grow disgruntled. Why is clearing out cupboards suddenly more important than making his breakfast, her husband Phil wonders? The truth is, the more rubbish Lou lets go of, the more light and air can get to those painful, closed-up places at the centre of her heart: the love waiting for a baby she would never have, the empty space her best friend Deb once occupied, and the gaping wound left by her husband's affair. Even lovely Tom Broom, the man who delivers Lou's skips, starts to grow concerned about his sweetest customer. But Lou is a woman on a mission, and not even she knows where it will end ...

Product Description


'I have had a fabulous time reading A Spring Affair. I loved it. Milly Johnson does horrible husbands better than anyone I know and this time she has surpassed herself. There should be a public health warning with this book: only read if you can afford to lose a day. She has created a lovable heroine with a deliciously vile husband whose eventual come-uppance is a total delight. I emerged from its pages in a mood of sublime contentment' Debby Holt 'An irresistibly feel-good read' Jane Costello 'A warm, funny, and touching tale about friendship, relationships, and everyday lives. I loved it' Matt Dunn 'I love this author's easy, addictive style, which has you warmly racing through the pages here as a delightful heroine finds what she has been looking for. Lovely stuff' Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller 19/12/08

About the Author

Five-foot-tall Milly Johnson is a half Barnsley, half Glaswegian writer of greetings cards, novels and shopping lists featuring gin and buns. When not writing she is either reading, learning Italian, mixing with the Yorkshire glitterati, getting up the council's nose about a Dodworth Road Pedestrian Crossing or ironing school clothes. She lives with her two boys and a quartet of mad animals near her Mam and Dad in the middle of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

By Lydia - Novel Escapes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Move over Jane Green, Jill Mansell and Madeleine Wickham, there's a new queen in town! I absolutely LOVED this novel and think it deserves more than 5 stars! After reading it, I thought Milly Johnson could easily become my new favourite chick lit author and when I read another one of her books I awarded her this title and will read anything and everything she writes now. I absolutely LOVE finding fabulous new authors and can't wait to sink my teeth into the rest of her books and those she writes in the future.

Her characters are so well developed, her stories flow effortlessly and the tension ramps up and keeps you reading. I was hooked on this story immediately and could not put the book down and read it in 3 days. This book even had me clearing out clutter almost as soon as I had begun the reading it (and this is not something I'm very good at). My only complaint is that it kept me up late three nights in a row so I was half asleep while reading it and I was upset that it ended so quickly!

I can't wait to read more of her novels and my last complaint is that they take 1-2 months to order from Amazon Canada (but it is WELL worth the wait) and I'm glad I requested two of her books from a visiting friend, but I'm sure this will change as Milly Johnson gains international notoriety for her fantastic stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surpised by new author (for me at least) June 21 2010

First time I read Milly Johnson and I will look for more because I really liked the story. The characters are real and likable, the main character is a real woman in her thirties not particularly beautiful or thin ( I can identify with that) and the love story is believable. Recommend it to anyone. Good book.

This was fun. Not sure that I had made the right choice, but enjoyed from page one.
I read huge numbers of books, so am really fussy. Have to capture me in the first pages and keep me engaged. This was one I wanted to simply keep going. Easy to get really involved in the life of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Milly Johnson ROCKS Aug. 23 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have now read all of the currently published Milly Johnson novels. Not one has disappointed me. This particular book we meet Lou, a 35 year old married woman who seems more like a fifty year old when we meet her. She is married to Phil, who is your typical jerk husband. Three years ago Phil was caught having an affair and moved out for a brief period. When he comes back, Lou welcomes him with open arms and never questions him about the incident again. While at a doctor's office in present time she comes across an article about "clearing out your clutter" and how it will make you feel lighter. Lou sets out to clear ALL the clutter (lots of it!!!!) out of her life. By doing so she is unknowingly losing weight and regaining her self-esteem. She meets Tom Broom (the skip guy) and she starts questioning her life.

Throughout this book Lou not only clears the "material" clutter, but relationship and friendship clutters as well. The characters are instantly lovable and relateable. You will find yourself rooting for all of Milly JOhnson's heroines. PLEASE Buy this book!!! It's awesome, awesome.
