Riassunto: City lawyer Jane is leaving her husband, Patrick. She feels there must be more to relationships than theirs. On her travels around India she falls for Rajiv. Meanwhile, Patrick battles on to revive his ailing restaurant and falls for Stella. But has Jane thrown away the real thing?

Dal retro di copertina: ?Leith cooks up a plot rich in food and sex.?
--- People

Praise for Leaving Patrick

?Charming.... This lighthearted romantic confection is sure to win a new legion of readers here.? --- Publishers Weekly

?[An] enjoyable read, which makes the transition well from England to the United States.... Poignant.? -- -Library Journal

?Leith writes with depth, making us root for both country boy Patrick and urbane Jane.?--- People

? Leaving Patrick is the kind of fictional soufflé that actually satisfies.? --- The Irish Times [U.K.]

Jane is a high-powered London attorney who doesn?t have time for her marriage. Patrick is a struggling restaurateur who wishes he could spend more time with his wife. As they drift apart, Jane decides she wants more from her relationship than friendship, and so at age thirty-six she sets off on a journey to find what it takes to complete her life. She travels to India where she falls rapturously in lust with her tour guide, Rajiv. Meanwhile Patrick falls for baby-faced American food critic Stella, who could lose him more than his peace of mind; she could lose him his restaurant. Both affairs are disastrous and as their lives spiral toward disaster, Patrick and Jane reassess the decisions they?ve made. Has Jane thrown away true love with both hands?

Prue Leith, one of England?s top chefs, displays her expertise in her insider?s details of the restaurant business and the breathtaking food of India. In Leaving Patrick, Leith has created a well-written and moving story with wry humor and intelligence about the real choices adults have to make once they start taking stock of their lives.
