Summary

Winner of Best Author Read - Festival of Romance 

At 3.10 p.m. every weekday, parents gather at Featherstone Primary in Denbury to collect their children. For a special few, the friendships forged at the school gates will see them through lives filled with drama, secrets and sorrows. 

When Yummy Mummy Alana reveals the identity of her love child's father, she doesn't expect the consequences to be quite so extreme. Ex Czech au pair Earth Mummy Dana finds happiness in her secret sideline, but really all she longs for is another child. Slummy Mummy Mo's wife-beating husband leads her down a path she never thought possible, and Supper Mummy Joan has to cope when life deals her a devastating blow. And what of Gay Daddy Gordon? Will he be able to juggle parenthood and cope with his broken heart at the same time?

Four very different mothers. One adorable dad. And the intertwining trials and tribulations that a year at the primary school gates brings.

I love it!

Another really easy listening book by Nicola!
Penny Andrews has a voice that you will either love or really not like. I personally think she brings the stories to life and now look for books especially narrated by her.
It’s very easy listening and it doesn’t take to much Concentration.
Really enjoyable book so well done Nicola and penny.

If you likes the shop in Cockleberry Bay you will love this book as well
