Publisher's Summary

Carol married young - to philandering Phil - and became a mother young to highly-strung Jaz. Carol put up with Phil's infidelities: suffer in silence and keep the family together was her mantra.

Not so Jaz. The moment she discovers her own husband's errant ways - with a woman he barely knew - she throws him out of the house, changes the locks and bans him from seeing their toddler son Matty...Kate Long takes us into the heart of this mixed-up but utterly recognisable family who fight for what they believe in, even if it puts the closest members on opposing sides.

    "Complex family relationships."

    I enjoyed listening to this, but got very exasperated with some of the characters. Jaz is a foul-mouthed, spoilt brat who needed someone to stand up to her long ago. Carol is a doormat who puts everyone elses needs in front of her own and is much too wrapped up in her grandson.
    I liked Phil and felt quite sorry for him, despite his inability to be faithful, that is up until we found out about Eileen, I went off him after that!
    Kate Long writes about realistic family dynamics and I recommend all her books.

    "Story kept me hooked"

    An intriguing tale of the relationship between a mother and daughter. Mother Carol finally divorced husband Phil after many years of continuous infidelity. Daughter Jaz immediately chucked out husband Ian after one drunken episode. Between them is Matty, grandson and son, adored by Carol who spends a lot of time with him. Over several months we follow their story, sympathising with Carol who copes with an extremely difficult daughter, her desperate son-in-law, his father who wants the marriage repaired, her ex-husband who still hangs around, her uptight neighbour and mother-pecked teenage son and many others, without apparently ever losing her temper. I wanted to slap Jaz hard! I became totally involved with their lives, helped by the beautiful reading by Clare Corbett
