Publisher's Summary

Dee loves her children very much, but now they are all grown up, shouldn't they leave home? Rosie moved out when she got married, but it didn't work out, so now she is back with her parents. Helen is a teacher, and doesn't earn enough for a place of her own. Anthony writes songs, and is just waiting for the day when someone will pay him for them. Until then, all three are happy at home. It doesn't cost them anything, and surely their parents like having a full house?

When a crisis occurs, Dee decides things have to change for the whole family ... whether they like it or not.

Reality Check

A thoroughly enjoyable book. Maeve Binchy's characters are so engaging and real that you genuinely care about what happens to them. The story is very relevant in the current economic situation but Dee's way of dealing with the crisis is anything but usual. Her children, Helen, Rosie and Anthony are completely perplexed by their mother's behaviour and it actually brings them together more than they have been in years. After being taken for granted for years Dee has had enough and decides to introduced her children to reality and the resulting story is a rewarding read and you have a sneaking temptation to follow Dee's example.

Superb...

A truly great story. One complaint...as always with Maeve Binchy books....not long enough. I always want them to go on forever. Delighted to revisit... if not very briefly... known characters from other books. A style I much enjoy with Maeves books. Adore the narrator very skilled cousin of author. Terrific. Thanks.
