Publisher's Summary

When a man and a woman get married, things can get complicated. When they have children from previous marriages, "complicated" can become the understatement of the year. From the grown daughter who insinuates herself into her widowed father's romantic life, to the sullen teenager whose loyalties lie with her estranged mother; from the awkwardness of tense celebrations to the discovery of surprising sources of strength, Joanna Trollope reveals the laughter and tears, the tension and the tenderness, that live behind the statistics and stereotypes about stepfamilies.

Read by Clare Higgin.

Worst Book Ever!!

This is the worst book I have ever had to be subjected to in my life! The only reason I endured this book was because it was required reading for a college course I am enrolled in. Terrible... just terrible. The voice that read it was irritating, and the content was boring. I would rather shove pencils in my ears than be forced to listen to this book ever again.

Excellent! Moving!

This is a very detailed, firsthand narrative of feelings from each of the individuals in the families of divorce & beyond. Gives great perspective and insight!

Middle class real life

Waitrose world! I found the voice cloying but it fitted the characters well. No fault of the actor. I lost interest in who was who. Nonetheless a pretty realistic view of efforts to create happy blended families!
