Hazy Hassocks - a great place to visit!
on 5 January 2005
But I'm not sure I'd want to eat all my meals there! What a treat. A lighthearted, joyful (even in the sad parts) tale about a woman over 50! Oh, there's plenty for those of you 20-somethings, but it's a book that I can relate to as well. Christina has perfected the art of the endearing, sassy village tale - but she's really taken us further than she has before, with a touch of practical magic and advanced cookery. The story takes off just as Mitzi loses her job - the only job she's known. Her husband (the hapless Lance) cheated on her 10 years prior with a younger version of herself and she hasn't managed to get back on the man-track quite yet. What with two needy felines, even needier neighbors, and even more needy daughters, how could she? In the midst of it all, there are lessons about living life all the way through (and one of the best parts about the book is telling how a settled, stable, reliable relationship can bring wonderful satisfaction). It's a fun book, you'll love reading it. (Love that Lance!)
