Publisher's Summary

Lily and Laurence had it all: the money, the car, a beautiful home in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Then Laurence loses his job, and everything disappears. With nowhere to turn, Lily and Laurence are forced to take their two young children and move to a flea-ridden council house on a notoriously rough estate. As they try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives, Lily constantly dreams of returning to her old luxurious life. Will her dream come true, or will she learn that money doesn't always buy happiness?

    "Excellent book, wrong Narrator"

    The narrative did not fit in with the characters, having read this book I was expecting the tone to be different. I was distracted by the narrator rather than lost in the book.

    Annie Aldington is such are great narrator, she makes an already great book gripping and sucks you right in to the point that you can't stop listening until the end!! Another brilliant light hearted book by Carole Matthews with a great storyline that keeps you interested right to the last chapter!
