Publisher's Summary

Nora and Fern's relationship as mother and daughter is a tumble of love and distrust. To Nora, her daughter is an enigma - at the same time wonderful and unfindable. Fern sees her mother as treacherous - for busting up their family to move in with her lover, Jeanne. As their lives become complicated by the arrivals of a skateboarding boyfriend for Fern, a shadowy affair for Nora, a baby in need of a family, and by the failing health of Lucky, their beloved dog, this mother and daughter find their way onto a fresh footing with each other.

"With sharp humor and perception" (O: The Oprah Magazine), Lucky in the Corner shows us the way a family reconfigures itself as unexpected changes come its way - and how, no matter what shape it takes, it remains a family.

Very good book; unbearably bad narration

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favourite books by Carol Anshaw. I had read it a couple of times and couldn't wait to hear it on Audible... God what a let down this was. I couldn't even make it to the end of the first chapter, the narrator was so bad! I truly wish this book could be given another chance... this story calls for witty narration and characterisation! Please get Shelly Frasier to do it!

As for now... I want my money back!
