"A comic gem" (Alexander McCall Smith) about a housewife who kisses her chintz and her cheating husband goodbye
Constance Harding lives in a picture perfect house. She is, however, absolutely clueless about the real world, e.g.,
*why her twenty-five-year-old son still hasn’t found a nice girl,
*why her Lithuanian housekeeper’s thongs keep turning up in her husband’s study, and
*why her teenage daughter is dressed in head-to-toe spandex . . .
When disaster strikes, she flees her comfortable nest. Constance is about to discover a wider world she thought it was too late to find. And she’s putting it all in her blog-thingy.

Ceri Radford is a journalist and author who lives near Geneva, Switzerland. Constance Harding's (Rather) Startling Year is her first novel.Review:
“Wonderfully amusing. A comic gem.”
— Alexander McCall Smith
“Warning: unintended snorts of laughter may occur in public places. Comic satire erupts when modern mores and reality TV invade the comfortable confines of Constance Harding’s cozy upper crust world. I loved every dizzy, delightful page.”
— Helen Simonson, bestselling author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand
“Ceri Radford has perfectly rendered the inner monologue of a clueless but loveable Everywoman. Comforting, witty, poignant, and delicious.”
— Beth Harbison, New York Times bestselling author of Thin Rich Pretty and Always
“The endearingly clueless Constance Harding brings all of her generous good intentions to bear on solving the problems of those around her. What results are the hilarious misadventures of a hopelessly well-bred Englishwoman, an insightful commentary on our times, and a wonderfully messy tale of friendship, parenthood and love.”
— Juliette Fay, author of The Shortest Way Home and Deep Down True
“Wildly entertaining and amusing.”
— Publishers Weekly
“The New Helen Fielding.”
— Company (UK)
