Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel discovers that her husband is in love with another woman.

The fact that this woman has a ‘neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb’ is no consolation.

Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel is a cookery writer, and between trying to win Mark back and wishing him dead, she offers us some of her favourite recipes.

Heartburn is a roller coaster of love, betrayal, loss and – most satisfyingly – revenge. This is Nora Ephron’s (screenwriter of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle) roman a clef: ‘I always thought during the pain of the marriage that one day it would make a funny book,’ she once said – And it is!
