Summary

In this addictive short story collection, 24 very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives.

A widow is liberated by a new job but keeps it secret from her family. A date in suburbia has dramatic results. A seamstress takes revenge on an unsuspecting customer while in France, a mother is promised 'fantastic news' - and lets her imagination run away with her. 

With each story, Jenny Eclair introduces a fascinating new character. And behind each woman lies a gripping tale - of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance. 

Funny, heartbreaking, inspiring - and packed with wicked one-liners - this wonderful collection shows Jenny Eclair's exceptional talent for observation at its very best.

Good Easy But Involving Stories

I swear one story was a repeat from last book of short stories (dog one) but this was a good collection. Actually enjoyed the different narration as she was excellent. Listened to this on a journey and was ideal as short stories and would recommend.

Loved this well crafted story.

All loose ends neatly tied together. Highly recommended and can't wait for Ms Eclair's 3rd book in August.
