Pitching straight into the horrors of being a middle aged woman with uncanny accuracy, Jenny Eclair's novel had me hooked from the first page. Each chapter, revealed more and more detail about the main characters. There was so much packed into the novel - I loved the way that I was taken back to the 1960s, Jean's early married life and how attitudes to women and women's attitudes and expectations were seen to shift over time. Some dark connections between mothers, sisters and daughters - as well as with husbands and sons - were brilliantly explored. The detail, humour and great storytelling kept me reading into the wee small hours. Thanks to this book, I am going to making some changes re the teenage son. A flippin' marvellous book!
