Lizzie has always had bad luck. Losing her heart to her boss leads to her losing her job, and with no money in the bank Lizzie finds herself forced to move back home with her parents. Now in her 90s, Mrs Dallimore is also coming to terms with her situation. Old age is finally catching up with her. As they form the bond of unexpected friendship, Lizzie begins to realise that she's not the only person to attract bad luck and that sometimes life has a way of surprising you....

Great story and thoroughly enjoyed. As a Norfolk girl myself though I do wish people would not give us all ridiculous West Country accents!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying to be better than the print version?

Bought the book weeks ago but it took me getting it on Audible to get me started. Finished it in two days and have since filled my car with old clothes and books - home already looks and feels better - looking forward to carrying on decluttering tomorrow.
