    Janey is 18 and living in a small flat with her baby daughter. Just as her new life starts to show promise, her past catches up with her. Nicole is renting one of the new luxury flats. She's just walked away from her husband and teenage sons, tired of being treated as a servant, suspecting her husband of having an affair. Winifred has lived in her large family home for over 80 years but it's all getting too much, though she doesn't want to leave. Things are not what they seem, and danger can strike both rich and poor.

    Brillant

    Impelling story. Did not want to stop listening. Kept you wondering.

Then there's Winifred, an elderly lady who lives alone but has made friends with young single mum Janey.

    Cinnamon Gardens

    A very enjoyable read. All mothers have been there or similar experiences. The feeling of being trapped by ones children and ex husband.
