The award-winning In Search of Mr Darcy: Lessons Learnt In The Pursuit of Happily Ever After is a hilarious Nora Ephron-style, unfiltered dating memoir. It follows a super-independent woman on a real-life Sex and The City-like adventure through four decades of relationships, amid life's messiest moments, as she searches for Mr Darcy. Yup, that elusive literary Prince Charming we have been all but promised. But hold up, life isn't a fairy tale...and it sure as heck isn't a Jane Austen novel.


Writing with searing honesty, wry humor, and endless warmth Christina Ford dives headfirst into the colorful, intimate story of marriage(s), divorce(s), affairs, friends, frenemies, addiction, body image, sexual predators, and often thankless task of single-parenting and step-parenting, a job as potentially life-threatening as that of a Chilean coal miner.


Filled with candid truths and valuable life lessons, like how day drinking won't solve your problems (but it was worth a shot) or...the surprising effectiveness of a perfectly timed one-night stand (which did prove to be more effective than years of therapy), this book isn't just about love and loss; it's a survival guide for anyone steering the treacherous waters of dating and adulthood.


Whether you're navigating the dating scene, rebuilding after a breakup, or simply seeking reassurance that you are indeed "flawsome" - Ford invites readers to embrace the messy unpredictable journey of life, love and coming-of-age... middle-age.


For anyone who has ever wondered if there is life after divorce, sex after forty, or if they will ever find love again. The answer is, damn straight
