The Swearing Jar by Kate Hewlett. Meet Carey and Simon, an otherwise-perfect married couple with a bit a swearing problem. They’re determined to kick the habit by the time their baby is born. Too bad that’s not their only problem. Simon has a secret. And Carey has a new friend – a musician named Owen whom she met at a bookstore. With quirky characters, music and gentle humour, this lovely and intricately constructed story is about meeting challenges head-on and finding hope.
