The new novel from Salley Vickers, best-selling author of The Librarian, available for pre-order now.
A wonderful novel about four very different grandmothers: Blanche, who can't seem to stop stealing things from the local pharmacy; Minna, who just wants a quiet life in her shepherd's hut, though the local children have other ideas; Cherry, who's adjusting to life in a care home; and Nan, whose favourite occupation is researching funerals - whose lives and grandchildren become unexpectedly entangled.
"Vickers sees with a clear eye and writes with a light hand. She's a presence worth cherishing in the ranks of modern novelists." (Philip Pullman)
"Vickers has a formidable knack for laying open the human heart." (Sunday Times)
